Two men rob mini mart

GARY — Two masked gunmen robbed the Grant Mini Food Mart early Tuesday morning, firing shots into the glass partition around the cash register and leaving with an undetermined amount of money, police said.

The store employee told Cpl. Charles Turner that the two men came into the store about 2:35 a.m. and he saw they had guns. One man fired into the glass, causing a large hole, police spokeswoman Cpl. Gabrielle King said.

“The clerk, who was visibly shaken, was not able to give a detailed description of the suspects,” King said.

Detective Alex Jones is investigating the robbery. Anyone with information can call him at 881-7477.
