BAYONNE - Authorities are investigating the shooting of a Bayonne gas attendant during a robbery at the Exxon station on Route 440 and Fifth Street.

Police are looking for the men who exited a dark-colored compact car that pulled up to the 37-year-old attendant's booth and shot the man late Sunday night.

Surveillance video shows one of the men getting out of the vehicle and pointing what appears to be a handgun at the attendant. A second man exits the car with what appears to be a shotgun or rifle and attack the attendant with the butt of the gun. The man with the handgun then fired his weapon, hitting the victim in the chest.

The attendant was able to stagger into a nearby convenience store to get help.
