Man robs Family Dollar Store

A lone gunman entered the Family Dollar Store, 2111 Buena Vista Road, Columbus, shortly before closing time Monday, took an undetermined amount of cash and fled on foot, Columbus Police Lt. Steve Cox said Tuesday.

The man entered the store about 7:45 p.m., pulled a handgun, threatened employees and took the cash, Cox said. He was described as a black male, 6-foot-2, 200-220 pounds, with a full beard and wearing a red ball cap, red short-sleeve shirt over a light-colored long-sleeve shirt and black pants.

The case remains under investigation.
