VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Police are looking for a gunman who robbed a convenience store.

In his nine years in business on Northside Drive, Omni Food Mart owner Vijay Patel says he's never been robbed, until Sunday night.

Around 10:50 p.m. a man with a gun demanded cash.

He was black and wore dark shorts, white tennis shoes, a gray hoodie, and a baseball cap.

"That's what I did, just take what ever you want and leave me alone. Thankful to be alive, God saved me right now," said Patel.

The man ran off with several hundred dollars.
