• Robbers held up Myers Park gas station with gun, police say


    CHARLOTTE - Police are looking for suspects who held up a Myers Park gas station with a gun Tuesday morning.

    Officials said one of the suspects held a gun to the store clerk while the other grabbed several kinds of cigars and a lot of $1 bills.

    It happened at the Circle K on Selwyn Avenue.

    People who live in the area said these kinds of crimes do not happen there.

    “We walk our dogs here all the time, in the morning, night time. So to know something like that happened, it gives you an uneasy feeling,” said Myers Park resident Laura Streeter.

    Police said the incident happened around 2:30 a.m.
