Lakewood police are searching for four people suspected of robbing a convenience store at gunpoint Sunday night.

Two men and woman wore bandanas over their faces when they walked into the K&S Food Mart, 8533 South Tacoma Way, at 8:45 p.m. At least one of them wielded a small, semi-automatic handgun, police reported.

The suspects robbed the clerk at gunpoint and stole cash. They were last seen going north, then east from the store.

Officers reviewed surveillance video of the robbery and spotted a fourth suspect in the parking lot, acting as a lookout.

Officers released surveillance images of the suspects today.

Lakewood police ask anyone with information on the robbery to call them at 253-830-5064 or Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959.
