The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an armed robbery at the Shell station in the Ashbrook Commons Plaza Ashburn where the suspect fired a shot inside the store last night.
Shortly before midnight on April 1, the suspect entered the gas station, displayed a firearm and demanded the clerk open the cash register. During the course of the robbery he fired one shot from
his gun. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was injured.
The area was searched with the aid of a Fairfax County Police Department helicopter.
Detectives have released surveillance video images of the suspect. He is described as a black male in his 20s, approximately 6 feet tall, with a slender build. He has some facial hair, possibly a goatee. He was wearing blue jeans, black shoes and a black hooded sweatshirt with the number “1999” and an Abercrombie logo displayed in white on the front of the sweatshirt.
