WEST LOOP — A man robbed a West Loop convenience store at gunpoint early Friday morning, police said.

At 2:58 a.m., a man walked in and pointed a gun to a sales clerk at a convenience store in the 500 block of West Lake Street and demanded the employee open the register, said Kellie Bartoli, a police spokeswoman.

The man took an unknown amount of cash and cigarettes before getting into the passenger seat of a white SUV and leaving the scene, Bartoli said.

The clerk, who was unharmed, was unable to see the driver of the getaway SUV, Bartoli said.
