Update: Officials have released surveillance photos of Sunday's armed robbery at the Marathon gas station on LaFayette Parkway.

LaGrange Police believe the suspect pictured is linked to the armed robbery that occurred Tuesday night at the Wing-N-Burger Factory. Officials said he also may have committed the reported robberies in Auburn and Newnan.

Original Story: The gunman who robbed a LaGrange Marathon gas station late Sunday is on the loose, according to a press release.

LaGrange Police did not mention anyone being injured during the incident.

Authorities said they were called to the 1740 LaFayette Parkway convenience store around 11:25 p.m. Sunday to investigate the armed robbery.

Responding officers spoke with the clerk on the scene. He reported that a black man walked into the store, withdrew a gun and demanded the business' money before fleeing the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Using their K9 Unit as assistance, officers searched the area for the suspect, who was last seen wearing a red baseball-style cap, glasses and a blue pullover GAP sweatshirt.

Officials said they didn't locate the gunman or identify any possible suspects in the case, which remains under investiagtion.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the LaGrange Police at 706-883-2620 or Troup County Crime Stoppers at 706-812-1000.
