SHREVEPORT, LA  (KSLA) –   The search continues at this hour for a person accused of robbing a gas station tonight (Friday).

The robbery happened on the south side of town, near LSUS.

Witnesses tell police the suspect walked into a Chevron at Bert Kouns and Youree Drive wearing a stocking over the face.

The robber gestured as if there was a weapon, but the clerk says she never actually saw one.

Police say the robber ran out of the store, and into the nearby apartment complex, where they later found the suspect's stocking and an article of clothing.

Police officers and K-9's canvassed the area searching for nearly an hour before scaling it back, due to too many people in the area.

Investigators are working to obtain video surveillance of the robbery.
