North Fort Myers convenience store robbed at gunpoint

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying and tracking down an armed suspect who robbed a North Fort Myers 7-Eleven early this morning.

Just after 2 a.m., an unidentified suspect, wearing all black clothing and a multicolored mask, entered the 7-Eleven, located at 17930 N. Tamiami Trail, demanding cash.  He immediately pointed a black semi-automatic pistol at the two clerks, before jumping the counter and striking one of the employees in the face.  In fear for her life, the second clerk opened the cash register and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.  With the money in hand, the suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction.

He is described as being approximately 5’8” to 5’10” with a thin build.  His race is unknown at this point, due to the clothing and mask.  Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).  All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.  Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
