Leads have run out in the investigation into a 2012 robbery and shooting at the Laurel Walmart, so the FBI announced Thursday it is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.

A man robbed the Walmart in the 3500 block of Russett Green East in the early hours of Nov. 14, 2012, shooting one employee in the arm, reports WBAL TV.

FBI agents said the robber forced the night manager into the office, made him stuff cash from the safe into a trash can, and then had him put the trash can into a van parked at the front of the store. Investigators said the robber shot the manager before driving away.

The manager was treated for a gunshot wound to the arm and wasn't seriously injured, police said.

The FBI said it has exhausted all leads in the case and hopes the public has more information.

Authorities are looking for the person seen in a surveillance photo from inside the store. A photo of the van was also released.

Employees describe the robber as having medium-toned skin, was about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighed about 120 pounds. He was wearing a blue knit hat with white snowflakes on it, as well as a scarf and a hooded sweatshirt.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the robber should call the Baltimore FBI at 410-265-8080.

Just a question, why is the FBI investigating a shooting and robbery at walmart? Its not a bombing, or kidnapping, or federal property, or across state lines, so what brings it under federal authority?

Attempted Kidnapping will bring the F.B.I. every time.

And FYI... forcing the manager into an office then making him tote the cash out to the robbers van? = Kidnapping

And don't attempted murder bring in the FBI? I dunno but if the guy who shot the manager as he was driving off seems that's attempted murder js
