A store in the Virginia Square area was robbed by a man with a gun early Wednesday morning.
Police say a masked man walked into a business on the 3500 block of Wilson Blvd, brandished a firearm and demanded cash from the register, before fleeing “with an undisclosed amount of cash.” The only business on that block that would have been open at the time was a 7-Eleven store.
Responding officers were unable to locate the suspect. More from Arlington County Police:
