A man shoplifts items from a Save a Lot Food Store, and then when a store employee confronts him, he pulls out a handgun, and takes off.
The robbery happened just after 6:30 p.m. Sunday evening at the Save a Lot on the 400 block of S. Circle Drive in Colorado Springs.
When the suspect was confronted, he apparently didn't say anything, just ran east along Airport Rd.
Sunday evening, police searched the area and located one possible suspect, who was later determined not to be the suspect.
Based on witness testimony, the suspect may have gone into the Tembers Apartment nearby. Door-to-door searches were not successful in finding the suspect. He's described as a Caucasian in his thirties, about six-feet tall, 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue and silver windbreaker, dark baseball cap, jeans,and white athletic shoes.
