D.C. Police are on the lookout for a man filmed in connection with an armed robbery that occurred in Adams Morgan early Wednesday morning.

A man armed with a handgun robbed a convenience store on the 1900 block of Wyoming Avenue NW on Wednesday at approximately 4:49 a.m., say police.

A video released by police this afternoon appears to show the alleged robbery. A masked man in a gray hoodie, blue pants and boots can be seen entering the convenience store while carrying a handgun. Almost immediately, the man points the handgun behind the counter — presumably at the cashier — and gestures with his free hand. The man then appears to reach into the cash register and pocket several stacks of money.

The Department currently offers a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for a violent offense, including armed robbery, committed in the District of Columbia. Your assistance is appreciated by your community.

Anyone who can identify these individuals or who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to the Department’s TEXT TIP LINE at 50411.
