Trigger pulled during store robbery

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Police are searching for a suspect in the robbery of a Citgo Monday night at 2730 East Hundred Road.

Authorities said a masked man entered the store and demanded money from the clerks at gunpoint.

They complied and called 911 in the presence of the suspect.

The suspect pointed the gun at one clerk and pulled the trigger.  The gun was either not loaded or misfired because nothing was fired out of the chamber.

He then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

No one was injured during the incident.
