Man threatened with handgun, robbed outside store

A man reported being robbed early Sunday after walking out of a store at East Ferry Street and Ernst Avenue on the East Side.

The victim told police that as he exited the store at 2 a.m., he was confronted by one of two men standing outside. One of the two men, armed with a silver 9 mm handgun, said, "I'm going to shoot you," while the other man went through the victim's pockets, taking an undisclosed amount of cash, a cellphone, house keys and an ID card.

The two suspects fled in a silver pickup also occupied by two other men, police said.
