An armed robber and two companions escaped gunfire in a convenience store theft early Wednesday in Monroe County.
Just after 1 a.m., three men entered the BP gas station at 1334 Rumble Road, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
As the clerk was stocking a drink cooler, one of the men went behind the counter and took money from the cash drawer.
The store employee confronted the robber, who pulled a gun, the release stated.
The attendant, who also had a gun, fired a shot but did not hit anyone as the men left in a dark-colored pickup truck headed toward Interstate 75.
Anyone with information about the armed robbery and the suspects is asked to call the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office at 478-994-7043.
