A 7-Eleven store in Turtle Creek was the site of an armed robbery on March 11, 2019.

Police suspect two men robbed a 7-Eleven and a BP gas station Monday morning.

The men, one armed with a gun, got away with $600 Monday morning from the Turtle Creek convenience store.

Allegheny County police believe they were involved in another heist at BP in Penn Hills a short time later.

The unidentified suspects have been described by police as black and wearing hoodies.

One of the men had two handguns and two different shoes. The man demanded cash, wore a black mask covering only the lower portion of his face and wore a gold shoe and a black shoe.

The first robbery happened around 3:14 a.m. at the 7-Eleven at 423 James Street in Turtle Creek. The second robbery happened around 4:41 a.m. at a BP gas station at 8936 Frankstown Road in Penn Hills.

No injuries were reported, and the suspects were reported to have fled the 7-Eleven store on foot.

The 7-Eleven store closed for a time as police investigated the scene but has since re-opened.

Anyone with information about the alleged robbers are asked to call the Allegheny County Police Tipline at 1-833-255-8477. Anyone who sees the alleged robbers are asked to call 911.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
