LOS ANGELES - Detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department hope someone will come forward with information that will lead to the arrest of the man seen on surveillance video robbing a convenience store in the Pico-Union area.
LAPD investigators said on Sept. 13 around 1:05 a.m., the suspect walked into a convenience store in the 1800 block of West Olympic Boulevard. Video shows that the suspect walked up to the counter after waiting in line and produced a handgun a short time later. He then fired a single shot over the counter and asked the store employees to fill a bag with money.
The employees complied and the suspect proceeded to fire a second shot before running away from the scene with the bag of money.
Authorities described the suspect as a Hispanic man around 24 years old with black hair and brown eyes, standing at 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray and blue Dodgers hooded sweatshirt with black pants and white tennis shoes.
