Convenience store robbed at gunpoint

A convenience store on Old Middlefield Road was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday night, according to police.

The 7-Eleven, located at 1951 Old Middlefield Rd., was held up by two men who entered the store at about 9:20 p.m. on Jan. 15, pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded cash, Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police Department said.

The clerk handed over about $300, Jaeger said.

The men were described as Hispanic, in their early 20s, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, and wearing dark clothes, Jaeger said. Each wore a black hooded sweatshirt and one covered his face with a mask. The men fled on foot through the store's parking lot.

Wait.. it's illegal to use a gun during the commission of a crime.

Does this mean criminals don't obey gun laws?

No. Has to be some other meaning.

A agree with Otto's very astute comment! Maybe all those bashing Mayor Inks for not being a supplicant to Bloomberg's gun agenda will care to comment?
