A masked man robbed a Lexington gas station early Monday morning.
Police responded to the Shell station on Harrodsburg Road, near Lane Allen Road, around 1:45 a.m. They say the clerk told them he was in the back of the store working when he heard somebody come in. The next thing he knew, a man put a gun in his face. The robber demanded cash and got away with some money from the register. The clerk was not hurt.
Officers say a K9 tracked the suspect to a parking lot next door, but the trail went cold.
The suspect was waring a black hoodie and mask, so police did not get a good description. They say they hope surveillance video will reveal more clues.
