An armed robbery was reported Thursday night at a convenience store on Hwy. 51, police confirmed.

Police Chief Bobby Bell said the Brookhaven Police Department got a call Thursday night of an armed robbery at the A-One Stop convenience store on Hwy. 51 North. The clerk said a black male came into the store, grabbed a drink and came to the counter where he asked the clerk for a pack of cigarettes. The man then asked her for money, the clerk said, and lifted his shirt up to reveal what appeared to be a gun. She gave him money and the suspect left the scene.

Bell said police are reviewing security footage for images of the suspect, which should be released to The Daily Leader later in the day as the investigation continues.
