Video: Gunman robs Vienna 7-Eleven

Fairfax County police are searching for a gunman in an armed robbery at a 7-Eleven in Vienna that was captured on security cameras.

The suspect entered the Park Street store at about 3:15 a.m. Sunday, drew his gun, pointed it at the counter clerk and demanded cash, police said. He complied.

The gunman then followed a second clerk into the store's office, where he beat the worker with bottles, police said. The weapon was fired during the assault, but no one was struck.

The suspect then ordered the workers to exit the store, police said, after which he fled in a vehicle.

Police describe the suspect as a 20-something, heavy-set man, between 5' 6" and 5' 9" tall with dark hair and a full beard. He wore black pants, a black baseball cap and carried a green shopping bag.

Anyone with information is asked to call 866-411-8477.
