Police detectives are working to identify and apprehend a man who robbed a central Shreveport dollar store this morning.
At approximately 9 a.m. on August 16, 2012, Shreveport Police patrol officers responded to a reported armed robbery at the Dollar General in the 2800 block of Jewella Avenue. Upon arrival there, patrolmen contacted a witness who told them a male suspect burst into the store brandishing a silver semi-automatic handgun and demanded money from the clerk at gunpoint.

The suspect is described as a medium build black male, approximately five feet ten to six feet tall, wearing dark glasses, dark sweat pants, a grey hooded sweat-shirt with a mask covering his face. Investigators were successful in recovering surveillance video footage from the business.
