One suspect has been apprehended and another remains at large in connection with an armed robbery at a Clarksville market.
The incident happened around 8:40 p.m. Saturday at the Excell Market on Ashland City Road.
Montgomery County sheriff’s officials said two men entered and demanded the employees load a trash bag with money from the register and safe.
Surveillance video from inside the store showed one of the men holding a gun to the back of a customer’s head.
Police said four customers inside were forced into a bathroom at gunpoint. They said a fifth customer who walked in on the robbery had a gun placed at his head and also forced into the bathroom. A sixth person, who was in the parking lot, was reportedly forced into the building as the suspects fled the scene.
The suspects got away with $7,437 in cash, $4,255 in checks and credit card receipts, eight cartons of cigarettes, and eight boxes of cigars from the store.
They also reportedly stole cell phones and $660 from customers in the store.
