NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Police are looking for a man claiming to be an electrician robbed a North Charleston bar and tied two people.

Officers responded to a report of a robbery just before 5 p.m. Saturday. Witnesses said a man dressed as an electrician came in and said he needed to do an inspection because of a blown transformer.

The people said the man took out a gun and took money from the register and a back office. They said he then tied them up with zip ties and left.

One shot was fired into a wall, but no one was hurt. Authorities are still investigating.
