Man fires 2 shots in robbery of Baldwin 7-Eleven, cops say

Nassau police said they are looking for a man who fired two shots inside a Baldwin convenience store during a robbery early Thursday morning.

Detectives said a man wearing a gray pullover, black knit hat, jeans, brown boots and a light-colored scarf walked into the 7-Eleven at 2099 Grand Ave. at 6:15 a.m. armed with a handgun, and fired one round into the ceiling. He demanded the clerk open the cash register, police said, and he removed an undisclosed amount of cash.

The clerk was unable to open a second cash register, and the robber fired another round into that register, police said. He then fled on foot east on Miller Place, police said.

No one was hurt in the robbery, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
