ZEELAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Two robbers armed with a gun stole cash from a 7-Eleven convenience store Sunday morning.

Upon arriving at the scene, the clerk told deputies that two men entered the store with their faces covered, pointed a small handgun at him and demanded money. He said he gave them money from the cash registers, and they left.

A K-9 unit was able to track the suspects for a short distance before losing the track.
