Officers with the West Point Police Department are investigating a Monday night armed robbery.
WPPD officers received the call about the robbery at One Stop on Highway 45 South Alternate at about 9:30 p.m., according to a press release from the department.
Store surveillance footage shows three suspects with white T-shirts covering their faces entering the store, the press release said. One of the suspects held a black semi-automatic pistol and acted as a cover while the other two took the cash register. The suspects then left the store and ran around the building's northeast corner.
The press release said the suspects all wore dark shirts and pants but that each wore different colored shoes: one wore black shoes, another red and black retro Jordan's and the third white and black Jordan's.
Investigators have asked anyone with information on the robbery to call WPPD at 662-494-1244 or the Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 1-800-530-7151.
