Tumwater police are searching for a suspect in an armed robbery that took place Sunday night at a 7-Eleven store at 1022 Crosby Blvd.
According to Tumwater police:
About 10:30 p.m. Sunday, a man entered the store and fired one round into the ceiling with a semi-automatic pistol. He then confronted an employee, demanded that he open the cash register, stole money and then fled. A K-9 track was unsuccessful.
The suspect, thought to be white and about 6 feet tall, was wearing a heavy ski jacket with a hood, and his face was covered.
Tumwater Lt. Jay Mason said they received conflicting reports about what was covering the suspect’s face. It could have been a ski mask or a bandanna, he said.
Police plan to take a closer look at video footage captured by the store’s cameras, Mason said.
