Detectives with the Robbery/Assault Unit are asking for the public's help in locating a suspect in an armed robbery. 

According to a PCSD release, the incident happened on Saturday, March 21 at 8:30 p.m. at a Circle K at 9810 South Nogales Highway, when deputies responded to the report of an armed robbery. 

The male suspect entered the store and brought an item to the counter, where he produced a gun and fired a round into the ceiling, before demanding money.  According to the release, after the suspect got an undisclosed amount of money he left the store in a dark colored vehicle of an unknown make and model.
