MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Police are looking for a suspect after a convenience store was held up at gunpoint Saturday morning, but the store owner also took his own action.

Minneapolis Police responded to a report of an armed robbery just before 9 a.m. at the Handy Stop on the 2600 block of West Broadway Avenue. When officers arrived, they learned an armed suspect entered the store and attempted to rob it at gunpoint.

Police said at some point, the suspect and the store owner exchanged gun fire. Nobody was hit as a result of the gun fire, and there were no injuries in the incident. The suspect fled the scene before officers arrived and is still at-large.

The incident remains under investigation, and anyone with information should call Minneapolis Police.
