A gunman robbed the BP gas station at 113 Millers Chapel Road early Sunday morning, according to a police report.

The report said a man entered the business around 12:45 a.m. through its west side door and then ducked down behind the counter "to avoid video cameras" and approached the clerk while pointing a handgun at the employee.

The man then said "hand me the money in the register," the report said, and then stood up and left the business, running north toward McCall's Barbecue and Seafood Restaurant with an undetermined amount of money.

The report described the suspect as a 5-foot-8-inch tall black man weighing 160 pounds who was wearing a black do-rag on his head and a bandana over his face.
