Police are looking for three suspects who stole cash and cigarettes after pulling a gun on a clerk at a southwest Fresno store.
Sgt. Sean Biggs said about 7 a.m. Sunday, a store clerk was opening his business at 2139 S. Elm Ave. when three men who appeared to be waiting to enter the store orchestrated the robbery.
Shortly after getting behind his counter, the clerk had a silver revolver gun pulled on him with demands to get on the ground from one man who entered the store, Biggs said.
The clerk complied and two more men later entered the store attempting to open the cash register. Biggs said the suspects failed but the clerk was forced to open it.
