Two men robbed an AutoZone store at gunpoint Sunday night in Beaufort, according to a release from the Beaufort Police Department.
Two employees of the AutoZone on Boundary Street were closing the store around 9 p.m. when two men wearing masks and brandishing handguns entered the store.
The men ordered the employees to turn over the store's money and to kneel down in a room in the back of the store, the release said. While the two men were in the store, a customer entered and was also ordered to the back of the store.
An employee called police once the men left the store, but a search of the area by police and the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office did not locate the men.

Witnesses described the two suspects as black men in their twenties. One was wearing a light shirt and pants and the other red shorts and a black t-shirt.
Still images from store security cameras show the two masked men pointing guns at the employees.
The robbery is under investigation by the Beaufort Police Department, and anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at 843-322-7966.
