The clerk described the suspect to police as a black male, about 5 feet tall, dressed in all black, wearing a black bandana around his face and carrying a black semi-automatic hand gun. The suspect got away with an unknown amount of money and was last seen running toward Avalon Lakes Apartments across 71st Street.
