7-11 in Brooklyn Park is robbed
A gunman robbed a Brooklyn Park convenience store early yesterday, county police reported.
The man walked into a 7-Eleven store at the intersection of Ritchie Highway and Church Street at 2 a.m. and brought three cartons of cigarettes to the counter, police said.
The man told the clerk he had a gun and was going to take the cigarettes, then ran from the store and got into a waiting car, police said.
A witness saw the car and gave police the license number. State police soon stopped the car on Pennington Avenue. Two men got out and ran away from police.
