A clerk was shot Thursday afternoon during an armed robbery at a medical marijuana dispensary in Littlerock, authorities said.

Three to five men wearing ski-type masks entered the dispensary at 7315 Pearblossom Highway about 4 p.m., according to Lt. Brian Dunn of the sheriff’s Palmdale Station.

Two of them were armed with semiautomatic handguns, he said.

The wounded clerk, a man whose name was not immediately released, was shot in the side, Dunn said. He was taken to a hospital for treatment and was expected to survive, the sergeant said.

The suspects made off with cash, marijuana, cell phones and a computer, Dunn said, and fled in a white mid-sized car with tinted windows.

Detailed descriptions of the suspects were not immediately available.
