Three different 7-Eleven Convenience Stores were robbed in Colorado Springs within a few hours of each other on Sunday morning.
Colorado Springs police say the first robbery happened early Sunday morning at around 2:22 a.m. at the 7-Eleven located at 3805 E. Pikes Peak Avenue.
There police say two men with guns walked into the store demanding cash. Two other men were standing outside as look-outs. One of the armed men, according to police, shot one bullet at one of the clerks narrowly missing the male clerk.
All four men took off. Police say all four were Hispanic and in their early 20's.
Less than an hour later the 7-Eleven Convenience store located at 2555 Delta Dr. was robbed.
There, police say four men walked into the store. At least one of the men was holding a gun. The robbers demanded cash and fled.
An Alert K9 Officer pulled over a vehicle he believed to be the getaway car. Inside the car were five people. All five were arrested. Inside the car police say they found items from the Pikes Peak 7-Eleven robbery and the Delta Dr. 7-Eleven robbery. A pistol was also recovered from inside the car.
Some of the suspects, police say, are connected to three robberies that happened last weekend.
Then, less than two hours later at around 5:07 a.m. on Sunday morning a third 7-Eleven Convenience Store in Colorado Springs was robbed. This one happened at the 7-Eleven at 5 S. Circle Dr.
There, investigators say a black man walked into the store brandishing a handgun. He demanded cash and took off. No arrests have been made in that third robbery. Police also say the third robbery is not connected with the first two robberies.
