Lexington tobacco shop robbed at gunpoint

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Police tell WKYT that around 9:30 p.m., three armed men walked into Discount Tobacco Zone on North Broadway and demanded cash.

We're told the clerk handed over the money and that's when the men took off.

"I think they were compliant which is always the best thing. No reason to get injured over money," Lt. Harris, with the Lexington Police Department, says.

Police say all three suspects were wearing bulky black clothing.

Police tells us they will look through surveillance footage to help identify the suspects.
