LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County officials are looking for a suspect they say robbed a convenience store at gunpoint.

Authorities say it happened at Zelmo's Citgo on U.S. 82 West a little after 9:15 p.m. Tuesday.

In the video a man comes into the store wearing a backpack and carrying a gun, wildly pointing it at the clerk. Police say he got away with a small amount of cash.

The suspect is described as between 5'5 and 5'9 in height and wearing a blue shirt and a red mask.

Investigators say they think he had been watching the store for some time. He ran away towards the Dougherty County line after the robbery.
