Round Rock police looking for armed 7-Eleven customer


Round Rock police are asking the public to help them identify a man they say

brandished a handgun at a 7-Eleven on Jan. 3.

Shortly after 2 a.m., officers responded to the convenience store at 1118 E. Palm Valley Blvd. to a call about a disturbance involving a man with a firearm. 

Police said the officers found out that a store employee and a customer had gotten into an argument. Before the customer left the store, police said, he displayed a silver and black handgun from near his waist and he held the weapon by his side.

Police have described the armed customer as a white man with short dark hair and a goatee. He was last seen wearing white sneakers, blue jeans, and a dark hooded pullover with a small logo over his left chest.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about the incident or the vehicle involved to call Round Rock police at 512-671-2709.
