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.
