Investigators said the man approached an employee with a gun as the store was getting ready to close. No customers were in the store at the time. It is unknown as to whether there is surveillance footage of the suspect, and unknown as to whether the man got away with cash.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 23-CRIME.
