RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A Circle K in Raleigh was robbed at gunpoint Thursday morning and the suspects are on the run, according to Raleigh police.

Officers responded to the Circle K located at 3721 Tryon Road around 3:15 a.m. in reference to an armed robbery. An investigation showed that two unknown suspects entered the store – one armed with a gun – and robbed the clerk.
