A Murphysboro convenience store was robbed at gunpoint late Monday night.

According to the Murphysboro Police Department, the robbery happened just after 10 at the Circle-K convenience store on N 14 Street.

Initial information showed a black male had gone into the store and showed a handgun.

The suspect then demanded money and fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash.

When approached, the male fled and after a short foot chase was captured.

The suspect was taken back to the store where the victim clerk identified him.

Officers then took the suspect to the Jackson County Jail.
