Kwik Shop robbed at gunpoint

By: Dan Messineo

Police say a robber pulled a gun on a Kwik Shop clerk and made off with the convenience store's cash.  

It happened a little after midnight at the Kwik Shop on the corner of 56th and South streets. 

Police say the suspect pointed a black handgun at the clerk and demanded cash.  The clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of money.  The suspect ran north bound from the store.

Police say a k-9 unit followed a track for a distance, but it ended abruptly, which leads them to believe the suspect hopped in a car and took off. 

 Suspect Description:
-Male with darker skin
-Wearing all black with a bandana covering his lower face
-Wearing black and tan gloves

 Police have no suspects.
