Around 12:01 a.m. this morning, officers were dispatched to the 3000 Block of Lake Road on reports of a robbery.

Police said the male suspect entered the business with a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded money.

Fleeing on foot, the suspect then left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police said the suspect is a Black male, standing at about 6 feet tall with a medium build.

He was last seen wearing a red baseball cap, a dark sweatshirt with a hood, black pants and white shoes with a red and green pattern on the sides.

During the robbery, video surveillance shows the suspect wore a dark-colored mask over both his mouth and nose.

He can also be heard making threats to both the store clerk and what appears to be a shopper.

Before leaving, the suspect also demanded all of the store's packets of Newport cigarettes.

Killeen P.D.'s Robbery-Homicide Unit is currently leading this investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Crime Stoppers at 254-526-TIPS (8477).

Tips are also being accepted via the P3Tips App, available on both IOS and Andriod.
