TULSA, Oklahoma -- Police are looking for the man who robbed a Fiesta Mart in south Tulsa at gunpoint early Monday morning.

Police officers say a man wearing a ski mask over his face ran into the store at 93rd and Delaware just before 4:30 a.m.

The clerk told police the robber demanded cash.

Police say the robber was black male in his mid to late 20's, approximately 5'6" with a medium build, last seen wearing a black stocking mask pulled over his face, blue jacket, dark pants and yellow gloves.

Tulsa Police say he lost his balance as he grabbed a lottery ticket display and accidentally fired off a shot from his handgun before running off.  The clerk was not injured.

Officers say the robber may have gotten into a gray vehicle parked just west of the store.  It was last seen heading northbound on South Lewis.
