Police say they’re looking for a former employee of a store in Cooperstown after a confrontation that led to the owner opening fire on the man.

Cooperstown Police Chief Michael Covert said that 62-year-old Barry Renert was armed with a handgun when he went to the Seventh Inning Stretch store on Main Street and threatened the owner at around 9 a.m. Monday.

He says the owner fired once at Renert, who ran off.

The store is just a few doors from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. It bills itself on its website as the largest vendor of sports memorabilia in town.

Some of the baseball souvenir stores and other shops lining Main Street closed Monday or were already closed for the winter.
