The man first acted like a customer, approached the counter, and stated that he wanted to buy Newport cigarettes, police said.

The clerk asked the customer for his ID when the man pulled out a handgun and demanded the money from the cash register.

The clerk hesitated and then hit the panic button, causing the suspect to become frustrated, so he left the store empty-handed and ran east towards Dunlap Street, police said.
