An early-morning robbery at a local convenience store has Shreveport police searching for a suspect.

When officers arrived at the Circle K in the 3300 block of Bert Kouns, an employee told them that a white male stood outside the store briefly, pointing what appeared to be a handgun in her direction. Then he walked in and ordered the clerk to open the register. He grabbed the cash till and took off westbound. The employee wasn't injured. Police are combing through surveillance video to see if they can identify the suspect. If you can help in the meantime, call Shreveport-Caddo Crime Stoppers (673-7373).
