A surveillance camera was rolling as a man with a gun robbed a Circle K store in northwest Oklahoma City on July 4.

According to police, the man walked into the store at N.W. 39th Street and Meridian just before 2 a.m. The clerk said he first walked up to the counter with a 32-ounce drink. But instead of paying for the drink, he pulled out a gun and demanded cash.

After the clerk gave the man the money from the till, the suspect walked out of the store. Police say he was not driving a vehicle.

Police have released photos of the suspect. There's no detailed description of the suspect; police say he's a black male wearing a blue Thunder hooded sweatshirt. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
