A string of four convenience store armed robberies started in our neighborhood Sunday morning.
Three young men demanded money at gunpoint at the 7-Eleven on Hampton at Jefferson at 12:20 a.m. A shot was fired in that robbery.
At 2:53 a.m., they robbed the Exxon station on South Hampton near Illinois. Shots were fired there too.
They then moved southeast to a Texaco near Loop 12 and U.S. Highway 175,where a shot was again fired.
Just 10 minutes later, at 4:40 a.m., they robbed a Marlow’s on 175.
No one was injured.
