Shotgun Used in 7-Eleven Robbery

Chula Vista police officers will review surveillance video in an armed robbery at a 7-Eleven store.

Investigators say the suspect came in to the store at 1079 Broadway just after 4 a.m. Sunday wearing a mask and armed with a 12-gauge shotgun.

The clerk was arranging some store shelves with his back to the door, when police say the gunmen pointed the gun at him and said "I don't want to ___ you up, so give me everything."

At that point authorities say the clerk got on his knees and traveled over to the store counter and emptied a register.

Police say the gunman demanded more money but the clerk told him that was it, other than a safe in the back that he could not open.

The suspect took off but the clerk did not know whether that was by foot or by car.

Despite being forced to the floor through the entire robbery, the clerk gave officers a solid description of the suspect, police said.
