METHUEN — A robber fired a gun at a Haverhill Street gas station employee who was shoveling snow last night, police said.

No one was injured in the incident, which was reported to police at 6:55 p.m. by an employee of All American Gas, 21 Haverhill St.

The employee told police he was shoveling snow at the gas station when an unknown person demanded money from him. When the employee refused, the male suspect brandished a gun and fired a single shot, police said.
