According to Sgt. Steve Larsen:

Three black males entered the convenience store, and one of them pointed a handgun at the lone clerk and demanded money.

The men fled the store southbound on foot with an undetermined amount of cash. A K-9 unit was used to track the suspects, but the trail was lost a short distance away.

One of the suspects is described as being about 6 feet 2 inches tall with a heavy build, wearing a stocking cap, jeans and a black t-shirt over a white long-sleeve shirt.

The other two suspects were described as being somewhat shorter, around 5-foot-10, with thinner builds and wearing heavy winter jackets and jeans.

Two of the suspects had their faces covered with a white cloth or towel.

Larsen said the suspects may have had a car waiting nearby.
