Tucson Police have released the identity of the suspect in an armed robbery of a midtown smoke shop on Nov. 12.

Police have obtained an arrest warrant for Adrian Pride, 18. They say Pride allegedly robbed the Maui Smoke Shop located at 1099 East Broadway Boulevard.

Anyone with information about Pride's whereabouts is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.

Police say Pride allegedly held up a clerk at the shop at gunpoint, but the clerk refused to give him money, and the suspect left the store.

A few hours later, police said Pride came back and allegedly threatened the clerk at gunpoint again.  

Police say Pride fled on foot, chased by the clerk. Pride allegedly fired several shots at the clerk as he left the area in a white 4-door passenger vehicle, according to police.

No one was injured in the incident.

Pride is described as Hispanic, 18 years old, about 5'8" tall and weighs between 140 and 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a navy blue "Rolling Stones" shirt with a tongue on it, navy blue basketball shorts, blue and black tennis shoes, black sunglasses and a gray hooded sweatshirt, police said.
