Tyler Police looking for purse snatcher

Tyler Police are still looking for a man who snatched a woman's purse just before 7:30 Monday night in the 600 block of East Oakwood Street.

Authorities tell us a mother and her son were getting out of their car in the parking lot of a business when an unknown male ran up and grabbed the woman's purse. The son ran over to help his mom, but the suspect fired a shot at him and then fled with the purse.

The robber, described as a black, heavy set male in his 40's, was last seen running eastbound on Oakwood Street.
