Macon police released details late this morning in one of multiple armed robberies they are investigating in addition to an overnight shooting.
Two men are on the run after robbing the Flash Foods on Vineville Avenue at Forest Hill Road at about 2:20 a.m. today, according to a news release from the Macon Police Department.
One of two black males, who were dressed in black shirts and blue jeans, had a red bandanna over his face as he pointed a gun toward the clerk and demanded money. The other man waited at the door and covered his face with something black, the release stated.
The robbers drove off with the money in a dark gray vehicle headed onto Forest Hill Road.
