Convenience store hit by robbery

Staff report

Authorities were searching for a lone gunman who robbed the E-Z Shop at 2008 Bridge St. on Paducah's Southside Friday afternoon.

A clerk told Paducah police that a man walked into the convenience store about 5:40 p.m., displayed a handgun and demanded money be put into a bag. The clerk stuffed an unknown amount of cash into the bag, and the robber ran toward Irvin Cobb Drive, according to a news release from police spokeswoman Robin Newberry.

The suspect is a white male.

The first police officer was on the scene within three minutes. He interviewed and released a man on the parking lot of a church across the street from the convenience store. Officers set up a perimeter around the area and McCracken County Deputy Steve Croft and his K9, Pepo, assisted in the search by attempting to track the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Paducah Police Department at 270-444-8550 or Crime Stoppers at 443-TELL. Tipsters also may text their tips to "CRIMES" (274637) by entering "KyTips" followed by their information, or by visiting the Crime Stoppers website at westkycrimestoppers.info. Information leading to an arrest or indictment may result in a reward of up to $1,000.
