OAKLAND, Miss. (AP) - Authorities in Oakland are searching for two suspects they believe robbed two convenience stores over the past couple of months.

Investigators tell WTVA-TV (https://bit.ly/MKJkcX ) that a man walked into an Exxon convenience store off Interstate 55 on Monday, pulled a gun on the clerk and demanded money.

Officers say the man fired a shot as he left the store with about $300 and cigarettes valued at more than $200.

Police say a second man drove a getaway car.

Investigators say the men are suspects in the January robbery of a Shell convenience store in Oakland.
