BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston Police are searching for three suspects in the alleged armed robbery of a convenience store in Roslindale.

According to BPD Superintendent-in-Chief William Gross, three masked men robbed the Alfa Gas Station on Washington Street just before 8:30 p.m. Monday night. Police said one of the suspects was armed with a gun.

One officer sat in the gas station’s parking lot waiting for the robbery suspects. Gross said the officer then chased the three men down Washington Street and fired a single shot at them. No injuries were reported.

Gross said police are trying to collect information from witnesses as well as from surveillance video footage.

Roslindale residents said they were not surprised at the robbery. One man told 7News, “those things happen around here sometimes. I’m not shocked.”

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact the Boston Police Department.
