Two shots were fired during an armed robbery at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Strathmore early Saturday, police say.

Police say two men went into the store about 2:10 a.m., one of them being armed with a long-barreled rifle, which was pointed at customers and a staff member while the robbers demanded cigarettes and cash.

Once the staff member handed over the money and cigarettes, the armed robber fired twice — while still inside the store — aiming in the general direction of the staff member, who wasn't injured.

The two men then fled in a waiting vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
