Tyler Police are looking for three people who robbed a convenience store early this morning. Just before 3 AM, officers responded to the K's Express Food Mart located at 1516 South Vine. The clerk told officers that three white males entered the store, with their faces covered.  One of the men pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded money.  

The man carrying the gun then walked behind the counter and took an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register.  He then handed the money to a second man who was standing on the other side of the counter.  The third man stood by the door and acted as a lookout.  All three men then exited the store and ran from the area on foot. No shots were fired and no one was injured. 

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the Tyler Police Department at 903-531-1000 or Tyler/Smith County Crimestoppers at 903-597-CUFF.
