Minneapolis police are worried today following a brazen armed robbery caught on surveillance video. They believe the would-be robber is likely to strike again after looking for an easier target.
It was around 9a.m. when an man can be seen walking up to the Handy Stop convenience store wearing a brown hoodie and a "Ghost" style mask to cover his face. With his semi-automatic handgun in his right hand the robber starts to climb over the counter.
That's when he realizes the store clerk is armed.
The clerk opens fire and a gun battle breaks out inside the store until the robber flees. Witnesses last reported seeing him running from the store and jumping on a BMX style bike to get away.
The robber is described as an African American male, 27 or 28-years-old, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall with a medium build.
