AUSTIN, Minn. (FOX 47) -

Austin police are hunting for two men who robbed a gas station-convenience store at gunpoint Friday night.

Austin Police Chief Brian Krueger said a 911 call came in about 11 p.m. Friday from the clerk at the Freedom Valu Center on 4th Street Northwest. He told police, two black men wearing all black came in demanding cash.

The clerk told police one pulled out a handgun and the other man grabbed cash from the register and the safe then ran away.

Chief Krueger said the police K9 officer tracked them for a block but then lost the scent. There are no suspects at this time.
