Police looking for armed robbery suspect

Early this morning, Guardian One, the King County Sheriff’s helicopter, was sent over Ballard in search of an armed robbery suspect.

Police tell us that at approximately 2:45 a.m., officers responded to an armed robbery at a business in the 3200 block of NW 54th (likely the 7-Eleven there). The suspect took cash from the register and left. Officers contained the area and K9 attempted to track him, but he wasn’t located.

According to police, the suspect is described as a black male, in his 40’s, 5’08”, wearing a gray jacket. He was wearing a heavy black ski cap pulled low on his face, and was armed with a black semi-automatic handgun. This description also matches that of an armed robbery that happened an hour and a half earlier in the 13000 block of Roosevelt Way NE. (Thank you Silver for the tip!)

Anyone know what was going on late last night (1:00 a.m. or so) at the corner of Market & 15th at the gas station? There were 6 or 7 cops with the gas station parking lot closed off.
