NASHVILLE (WSMV) - Investigators are searching for two suspects who they say robbed a Mapco Express on Nolensville Pike overnight.

According to Metro Police, officers responded around 9 p.m. They say two black males entered the store wearing white shirts covering their faces. One of the suspects had a handgun and demanded money.

Investigators said the two suspects got away with cigarettes, lottery tickets, and an unknown amount of cash from the register.

The investigation into the robbery is ongoing.

This is just one of three robberies of MAPCO stores in the last two days that investigators are working to determine are related. MAPCO released a statement regarding the robberies:

“As part of multiple robberies in the area, two of our stores were impacted overnight, one at 21st South, Nashville and the other at Bell Road, Antioch. No guests or team members were injured, both stores are now re-opened. Safety in our stores is our priority and we are working with law enforcement to identify the perpetrators.
