Posted By: Channel 8 Newsroom

Police are searching for three suspects after a convenience store was robbed at gunpoint.

Lincoln police say they responded to a silent alarm at a U-Stop near 13th and South around 1:30 Sunday morning. They say four men went inside the store and stole cash, cigarettes and beer. The clerk reported one of the men was armed with a silver revolver.

Officials say a sergeant happened to be in the area and noticed the suspects running from the business. Police were able to catch one of them, a 17-year-old male armed with a gun.

The incident is still under investigation. Police say they’re checking surveillance video to get descriptions on the remaining suspects at large.
