Wichita Falls police rushed to the Shell Gas Station just off RT. 287 Tuesday afternoon and immediately began searching for an armed robber.
Officer Jeff Hughes told Newschannel 6 the call came in just after one in the afternoon. A store employee told police a man walked into the store, grabbed a drink from the cooler and approached the counter. When the employee asked if he needed anything else, the customer showed a gun in his waist band and demanded cash.
The employee said the robber took off down Loop 11, toward Airport Drive. She described him as:
- Black Male
- Mid 20's
- Aprox. 6 Foot, 3 Inches tall
- Black hair with spots of gray
- Last seen wearing gray sweatshirt and jeans
Police brought out a dog to try and track the robber through the thick brush between the gas station and Wal-Mart on Airport Drive, but they never had eyes on the gunman. Their search is ongoing.
