Armed Robber Fires Shot But Drops Loot

An armed robber fires a shot to show he means business. But Bellevue police say the suspect dropped the money as he fled.

The robbery happened about seven Wednesday night at the Check & Go on Galvin road in Bellevue. A suspect wearing a ski mask but employees could see he had blonde hair, demanded money.

Police say the suspect fired a shot toward the ceiling. Though employees reportedly heard a shot fired, officers are investigating if the suspect had a real firearm or not. It appears to be a type of flare gun that fell apart in the robber's hand. So he dropped that as well.

The suspect jumped into a white vehicle and sped away. Nobody was hurt.
