Lincoln Store Held at Gunpoint

Delaware State Troopers are currently investigating an attempted strong armed robbery of a Lincoln convenient store that occurred early last evening. Police state that the incident occurred at approximately 8:00 p.m. last evening as a 55 year old male employee and a 22 year old male employee were working inside Kings Market located on Fleatown Road, Lincoln.

According to police, two black males entered the store with their faces concealed and walked toward the counter stating it was a “hold up.” As the older employee began to run through a back door, one of the suspects, who was armed with a handgun, fired one round in his direction narrowly missing him. The 22 year old employee took cover behind the counter as the two suspects fled the store without removing any property. They were last seen running in a southbound direction towards the neighborhood of Cedar Village. Neither of the employees were injured in this incident.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact the Major Crimes Unit at Troop 4 at 302-856-5850 Ext. 221 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Information may also be provided via the internet at www.tipsubmit.com
