NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Gallatin market owner says he has a lot to be thankful after he was pistol whipped in the head and a bullet was fired inside his store.

The incident was reported at the La Hispania Market located at 633 S. Water Avenue on Saturday, November 10.

Police reported three males entered the store, which is run by Jorge Lopez and his wife, and demanded money from the clerk.

During the incident a gun was discharged and blew out the market's front window.

Lopez added one of the suspects also put a gun to his chest, while a second gunman told him to get down.

The 42-year-old man told Nashville's News 2 the men told him he would be killed if he didn't give them all of his money.

The trio reportedly fled the scene in an older model silver Nissan Altima after taking an undisclosed amount of cash and numerous payroll checks.

Police said one of the stolen payroll checks was cashed in Nashville in the area near Foster Avenue and Nolensville Road.

The man who cashed the check is described as a Hispanic male with a thin build and around five feet, eight inches tall.

Lopez sustained minor injuries in the incident.

Anyone with information on the incident is urged to contact police at 615-452-1313.
