Po­lice in­ves­ti­gat­ing rob­beries at two con­ve­nience stores

The Dallas Morning News - - North Texas - Staff re­ports

Au­thor­i­ties in Haltom City are in­ves­ti­gat­ing after a pair of con­ve­nience store rob­beries left a clerk wounded.

Shortly be­fore 4 p.m. Thurs­day, a man went into the Mr. Con­ve­nience store in the 3600 block of Den­ton High­way and de­manded money from the clerk. A strug­gle en­sued when the man pulled out a firearm, and the clerk was shot once, po­lice said.

A cus­tomer walked in, no­ticed the fight and re­ported to po­lice that the man had left in a red BMW.

Of­fi­cers tried to stop the BMW but lost sight of it dur­ing a short chase. North Rich­land Hills of­fi­cers found the ve­hi­cle in their city, but no one was in­side, po­lice said. The clerk was taken to John Peter Smith Hos­pi­tal in un­known con­di­tion.

About five hours later, po­lice were called to the Car­son Food Mart in the 2500 block of Car­son Street for an­other rob­bery.

Wit­nesses at that store said the rob­bers fled in a white Cadil­lac sedan, and po­lice found a ve­hi­cle that matched that de­scrip­tion. When of­fi­cers tried to stop the Cadil­lac, the driver fled but lost con­trol of the car in the 3800 block of Air­port Free­way in Fort Worth.

Four peo­ple ran from the ve­hi­cle, and po­lice ar­rested one of them on a charge of ag­gra­vated rob­bery. That sus­pect’s iden­tity has not been re­leased.

Po­lice are work­ing to de­ter­mine whether the two rob­beries are con­nected.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion may call Haltom City po­lice at 817-222-7000.
