According to Atlanta Police Sgt. Greg Lyon, around 2:30 a.m., two men entered the store located at 3465 Northside Parkway. The clerk described them to police as black males, one wearing a red hoodie and the other a black hoodie, and both were wearing a black mask covering their face.
The suspect in the black hoodie pointed a black handgun at the clerk and demanded him to open the cash register. After the clerk complied, the man in the red hoodie reached in and took $500 in cash.
Both suspects then fled the store on foot heading north behind the store. Responding police checked the store’s surveillance camera footage and reportedly were going to do the same with a camera at the Taco Bell restaurant located behind the Chevron.
There were no injuries reported.
Buckhead was also the locale of an armed pedestrian robbery earlier during the evening as police say a man was robbed by two armed gunmen off Lenox Road.
