Sheriff's Office investigating armed robbery

Two armed men robbed the Shell convenience store on Trask Parkway in northern Beaufort County on Monday, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

At about 10:15 p.m., deputies met with two employees and a customer who said they had been robbed by men wearing dark clothing, gloves and masks. The men ordered everyone to the floor at gunpoint, the release said.

They demanded the victims empty their pockets, and then ran away in an unknown direction with an undisclosed amount of cash and various tobacco products.

No injuries were reported.
