A convenience store in Colorado Springs was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday night. Police are still looking for the suspect.

Officers say they were sent to the Diamond Shamrock at 2455 Arlington Dr. around 11:00 p.m. They found that the lone man had entered the store with a large handgun and demanded money from the clerk.

The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 5'7" to 5'9" tall with a medium build. He was wearing all dark clothing to include a hooded sweatshirt.

The man got some cash and ran out of the store northbound. Officers say they checked the area, but didn’t find the suspect.

Anyone with any information on any of the burglaries is asked to contact police, or call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

      That false fact has been floating around for know they lumped in ALL HISPANICS in the white count right? Probably not because you believe everything you read and can't do your own research.

    He must have needed money for MMJ. Parents are probably First Cousins.

    Well, "Fargin.." (cute, did your classmates at The Junior Academy help you with that?), your attempt at humor just fell flat...again. Might want to investigate truly sarcastic pundits (Bill Maher, Dennis Miller...)for a tutorial. And I'm supposed to go to other blogs to follow your chain of stupidity along it's natural course/s? I'm sure there's a high-school newspaper out there somewhere that would enjoy your sophmoric attempts to be topical and "edgy", but the rest of us think you're trite and uninteresting. Swing and a miss...yer outta here!

      Junior Academy? Now that's funny. And I wasn't attempting humor, so I guess you are the one who falls flat. I was merely pointing out the obvious sarcasm of Gobeel's post, and your complete lack of comprehension of it. I doubt that Gobeel makes a living out of being humorously sarcastic like Miller and others (personally I just find Maher stupid). The point was concise and simple. Sorry you missed it. You want edgy, you are definitely on the wrong site. And I love how you presume to speak for everybody else. You must be a registered Democrat. I know, not edgy. Wasn't trying to be.

        Whatever you're intent (humor?, insight?, I'm at a loss here), it didn't translate. Q: How could you possibly know "Gobeel's" disposition regarding all this, unless perhaps YOU are him/her (multiple monikers on this site to provide yourself support, clever indeed). I do agree that Maher is a hack, and much prefer Miller; dug him back in his SNL days, but your assessment about my political affiliation is sadly laughable; truth be known, I was a registered Repub, but changed to Independent before the last election cycle as the GOP is as far out on some topics as the Libs are on others. Another incorrect call on your part; I'll be waiting to see you submit another.

          I don't even know who Gobeel is. The sarcasm was obvious to me. As for your political affiliations, sauce for the goose, but you probably missed that, too. NOW, I'm outta here. Got better things to do.

        Might be, but are you gonna keep using psuedonyms, or just stick to one "name" for yourself?

      @LedHed: At some point, you'll learn that there is simply no point in putting yourself up on your imaginary pedestal with your incredibly cliche attempts at discrediting anyone you disagree with you. It just makes you look foolish. Not everything is an intellectual challenge for you to misuse the English language in.

        An inherent boorishness is sadly evident in your rebuttals, and my syntax, grammar and verbiage far rival anything you would lay proper claim to. Shall I keep it more colloquial for you? (Stop hatin' playa!).

    These convenience stores just invite crime. Time to ban them.

      So, to follow your line of thought, we should just shut down/ban any establishment where small (typically) amounts of cash are exchanged between customer and proprietor? That list would naturally include gas stations, fast-food restaurants, liquor stores, etc., correct? What a short-sighted, knee-jerk reaction that would only deprive some people of their choice of where to obtain goods and services and others of the ability to run their own small businesses.

        You can find the definition for sarcasm in any dictionary. Look it up.

          I'd expect something more substantial (and comical) in a sarcastic observation. Might want to have someone with an education beyond the third-grade read you the definition of "pointless".

          @LedHed - Perhaps you should look at the comments sections of all the stories related to MMJ and Liquor store robberies. You might see the 'point' of this sarcastic remark then.

    Blacks being known as robbers is not a stereotype, it's a true fact.

      False. Most robbers may be black but most black people are not robbers. Therefore, blacks are not known as robbers, because a majority of them are not.

    You people show extreme ignorance. Facts are facts, no matter how much you put blinders on and bury your head in the sand. Whites make up roughly 80% of the population, blacks roughly 13%. Yet, according to FBI statistics, blacks commit more robberies than whites. As far as whites committing more sex crimes, that's a true fact. But if you did it per-capita by race, blacks commit more. Racist? Nope, just facts. Sorry the truth hurts your little feelings.

    Black guy committing a robbery???? I'm about as shocked as I am when the sun rises every day....

      Since you are in awe because the sun rises, it appears as if you are a bit too stupid to be racist. Stop drooling on your keyboard, get out the basement and realize the '70s are long gone.
