According to police, two men with guns walked into the store and robbed the clerk at gunpoint just before fleeing northbound in a blue pickup truck with an undisclosed amount of cash.

A second robbery then occurred around 11:45 p.m. at a Citgo gas station in the 1300 block of Gardina, not far Vance Jackson Road.
