Shawnee Police are investigating an early morning robbery at a local convenience store.

Officers were called to the QuikTrip, 11915 Johnson Drive, at 1:12 a.m.. The store is located on the southwest corner of Johnson Drive and Quivira Road. The clerk reported that an unknown man had robbed the store and then fled on foot.

The suspect is described as a white male around 50-years old, with short gray hair. He was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans and boots.

Police say the man entered the store and asked the clerk for a pack of cigarettes. As the cigarettes and suspect's cash were exchanged, the suspect displayed a "rusty, silver revolver" and demanded cash from the drawer. The clerk handed over the cash, estimated to only be about $20, and was not harmed in the incident.

The suspect was last seen walking west and then south from the store.

Lenexa Police brought in a K-9 unit and conducted an area search. No one was located during the search.

Police continue to investigate.

Anyone with information is asked to call Shawnee Police at 913-631-2155 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.

The same QuikTrip location was robbed in February 2013. Previous report.
