Fort Wayne police are investigating an armed robbery that happened at a Speedway on the southwest side of the city early Wednesday morning. 

Police responded to the gas station and convenience store at 6033 W. Jefferson Blvd. around 1 a.m. That’s between Time Corners and Covington Plaza.

Detectives at the scene said a man came into the convenience store with a handgun and took an undisclosed amount of items and cash. 

The suspect then took off before police arrived. 

Officers with FWPD, the Allen County Sheriff’s Department, and Indiana State Police all responded to the area to help search for the suspect. 

Several police vehicles could be seen circling the area and using spotlights to look for the man, but their efforts came up empty. Police said the man is still on the loose. 

A detective talked with the woman who was working at the time of the robbery and looked at security footage, but he did not have a usable description of the suspect or suspect vehicle that he could share Wednesday morning. 

Nobody was injured in the incident.
