The robbery happened a month ago, and police still have no leads. The FBI said Thursday said they do not believe this robbery was linked to any others that they are investigating.
Surveillance video shows the suspect tackle the courier, grab his bag of money, then run out of the Guadalajara meat market on South Vermont Avenue.
Police say he got away with up to $100,000.
The suspect is described as a 25- to 30-year-old Hispanic or black male, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 160-170 pounds, with dark eyes, a beard, and a braided ponytail.
Police say he drove away in a dark green 1997 Isuzu Trooper.
"The courier fired two shots at the fleeing suspect in a green Isuzu Trooper, which blew out the back window of the vehicle," said LAPD Robbery-Homicide Captain Dennis Cremins.
