OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Deputies say a man has confessed to an armed robbery at a Kalamazoo County sporting goods store while another suspect is still on the run.

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office says the robbery took place at Dunham’s on West Main Street in Oshtemo Township.

Deputies say a man and a woman were looking at items in the store’s hunting section when the man put his hand in his jacket and forced an employee into a bathroom. The man then pulled a gun out of his jacket, took the employee’s keys and told them to stay put.
