Shots fired at Westover gas station robbery

Posted: Updated:

Two gunmen entered the Albany Deli and Food Mart Saturday demanding money.

The men had T-shirts covering their face.

"I was expecting a mask or something like that but with black shirts but I can still see you and identify you," says the store clerk.

They made him empty out both the main register and lottery register. One of the suspects then took a gun the store kept for protection and made a bizarre request for the store phones.

The robber shot the store phones at point blank range and one round ricocheted, hitting the desk.

Police are still searching for the robbers at this time.
