Shot fired, no one hurt during convenience store robbery
Money was taken but no one was hurt Tuesday evening when a lone gunman robbed the Stop N Shop convenience store.
The business is at the intersection of state Route 169 and Southeast 416th Street, just north of the Enumclaw city limits.
According to information provided by Sgt. Cindi West, public information officer for the King County Sheriff’s Department, a single suspect walked into the store at about 8 p.m. Brandishing a handgun, he demanded money from the cash register and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The Enumclaw Police Department was the first agency to respond and an EPD spokesman confirmed that one shot was fired during the incident.
County authorities called for a K-9 unit to help with the search, but the suspect was not apprehended.
West described the suspect as a white male, possibly in his mid-30s, of average height and above-average weight. He carried a black backpack and was wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt and light-blue jeans, with a black ski mask covering his face.
