Pittsburgh Police Investigating 2 Armed Store Robberies

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh police have been investigating the robberies of two stores by armed gunmen.

The first one happened just after 8 p.m. Sunday when a man entered the Dollar General Store in the city's Bloomfield neighborhood. That man flashed a gun, demanded cash and ran away.

The second robbery happened just before 10 p.m. when a man entered the Schwartz Supermarket in Marshall-Shadeland. He demanded a clerk fill a bag with money - again at gunpoint - before running away.
