Salem Animal Control officers don't know what happened to a deer that crashed into the Dollar Tree store on West Main Street late Wednesday afternoon.
Salem spokesman Mike Stevens says the deer ran through the front glass of the store in Spartan Square Shopping Center around 4:40 p.m.
"It sounded like a bomb, a cannon, a shotgun, something went off," cashier Jessica Lincoln told WSLS.
Workers in the store say the deer ran up and down several aisles, before running out the front doors held open by Lincoln and a customer.
Stevens said after the deer ran out of the store, a car hit it. However, the deer got up, and ran off before officers could catch it.
Dollar Tree workers cleaned up broken glass, some blood spilled by the deer, and a few damaged products. Luckily, no people were hurt. The store was waiting for someone to board up the broken glass window as of Wednesday evening.
