Video of holdup may ID gunmen

With hopes of generating tips from the public, Fort Wayne police have released surveillance video of a robbery at a north-side drugstore.

Shortly before 2 a.m. Wednesday, two masked men armed with handguns entered the Walgreens at Coldwater and East Dupont roads, police said.

One of the men approached a clerk working in the Christmas aisle, threatened to shoot her and threw her to the floor. A second clerk was ordered to the floor and later forced to open a cash drawer, police said.

The video released Thursday shows the robbers rushing out the door with the cash drawer. Anyone who can identify them is asked to call the Fort Wayne Police Department at 427-1222.
