AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

Auburn police tell News Leader 9 they are searching for a suspect, believed to be armed and possibly near the downtown area.  

Police say the suspect walked into Mr. P's Mini Mart on North College Street around 9 p.m. and robbed the cashier at gunpoint then left. Nobody was hurt. 

It is unclear if customers were in the store at the time the cashier was robbed. 

Police are saturating the area looking for the suspect who is believed to be on foot. This area is near downtown Auburn, where many people are out enjoying their Friday night at nearby restaurants and bars. 

Detectives are on the scene and hope to provide a detailed description of the suspect soon. 

This is a developing story. Stay tuned for more details.
