According to police, on Oct. 1 at 2:30 a.m. the suspect went to a convenience store near Flamingo Road and Valley View Boulevard. After entering the business, he shopped around and selected a bag of chips and a drink. He then walked up to the counter to pay. When the clerk opened the register the suspect pulled out a large revolver from his waistband and pointed it at the clerk while demanding cash. The clerk gave the suspect about $40.
