Convenience store robbed at gun point in Falls

NIAGARA FALLS – A 7-Eleven at 2620 Niagara St. was robbed at gun point by a masked man early Thursday.

The clerk at the store, which has been robbed in the past, told police there is usually only a maximum of $30 in the cash register.

According to police a black male, approximately six foot, two inches, 140 pounds, wearing a black mask, a gray sweatsuit, armed with a 9 mm handgun, pointed the gun at the store clerk and demanded, “Give me all the money out of the drawer – all of it.”

The clerk said he handed over the cash and the suspect took the money, put it in his pockets and then ran out of the store, heading westbound.
