A gunman with an orange face covering held up a Macon discount store Tuesday morning.
Just after 11 a.m., the tall, slim man pulled a handgun and demanded money at the Dollar General at 3407 Napier Ave., not far from Log Cabin Drive, according to a Bibb County sheriff's news release.
The gunman took an undisclosed amount of cash from the registers and got away, running toward Hillcrest Avenue.
He was wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt and a red hat.
A neighbor, who did not wish to be identified, was headed to the store to buy a soda.
She said she's worried that young people don't have enough constructive things to do.
"I'm praying that a change will come because I'm concerned about our children," she said. "I'm concerned about the neighborhood but not to the point of fear."
