Man Steals Gun from Convenience Store, Points it at Clerk: Police

Clerk uninjured after confronting robber, police say

A Fort Worth convenience store clerk was uninjured last month after a parking lot confrontation with a person police say stole a handgun from the store's owner.

According to police, the man walked into the Miller Grocery and Grill on the 2200 block of Miller Avenue at about 11:30 p.m. June 17 and waited for the clerk to walk away from the sales counter.

The man then went behind the counter and took the owner's handgun from a shelf, police said.

The clerk saw the man take the gun and chased him into the parking lot, police said. The thief pointed the weapon at the clerk as he got into a white, four-door car, possibly a Camry or Honda, and left.

No shots were fired and the clerk was not injured.

A detailed description of the man was not provided, but police did say the man was black, between 18 and 25 years old, between 5 foot 7 inches and 5 foot 9 inches tall, weighing between 145 and 155 pounds and had a line cut into his hair cut on the left side of his head.

Photos taken from surveillance video can be seen above.

Anyone with information on the aggravated robbery is asked to call detectives at 817-392-4469.
