Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – A lone gunman entered Dollar General this evening, demanding cash from a store clerk. Around 8:40 p.m. on Tuesday, October 6, 2016, officers rushed to Dollar General (14390 Lebanon Road) after Mt. Juliet’s Emergency Communications Center received a 911 call of an armed robbery that had just occurred.
A slender black male, approximately 5’10” tall, wearing a black hooded-sweatshirt, white undershirt, blue jean pants, gray Nike tennis shoes with black Nike logos, and using the sweatshirt hood to cover his face, entered the store and confronted a clerk at the front cash register. The suspect demanded cash, which the clerk complied. After retrieving an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect ran out of the store, but his whereabouts after that is unknown. During the robbery, the suspect was carrying a silver semi-automatic handgun.
No one was injured during this incident. Investigators hope someone in the community will recognize the suspect and his clothing from the surveillance images.
