January 26, 2010 |  4:03 pm

Los Angeles police released surveillance footage today that might help detectives identify a gunman who shot and robbed an employee at a Northridge medical marijuana clinic.

The robber entered the clinic in the 8900 block of Reseda Boulevard shortly after 2 p.m. Jan. 8 and took the victim's wallet and shot him with a handgun, the Los Angeles Police Department said. The employee was taken to a local hospital and listed in stable condition, according to police.

The video footage shows a man pointing a gun at someone's head as they quickly walk past the camera.

The suspect was seen driving a dark-green, four-door late 1990s Chevrolet Lumina, the LAPD said.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at (818) 832-0609.
