MPD Investigates Robbery, Attempted Robbery

A Meridian store clerk stopped a pair of would-be robbers in their tracks Monday night.

Police say two armed men tried to rob the clerk at the Gas 'n Go at College Park about 10 p.m.

But officials say the clerk pulled his own gun on them, and the suspects ran away. No shots were fired, and no one was injured. The suspects are still at-large.

Police say about an hour later an employee at a local hotel was robbed at gunpoint. The female victim was outside the Hampton Inn on Highway 11/80.

Police say the suspect took the victim's purse and then ran away from the scene. That suspect is also still at-large.
