Owasso Police Look For Car In Connection To QuikTrip Robbery, Shooting
OWASSO, Oklahoma - Owasso Police are looking for a vehicle in connection to an armed robbery and shooting Sunday morning.
It happened at the QuikTrip at 96th Street North and North Garnett.
A masked man robbed the store then fired a shot at a customer outside at about 4 a.m. on Sunday, March 15, 2015. The customer was not injured.
Deputy Chief Jason Woodruff said they are asking the public to help them identify a vehicle described as a bright red 2000 to 2005 Chevrolet Impala with tinted windows and black wheels.
"It was seen in the area just right before the robbery," he said. The still images were taken from QuikTrip surveillance video.
The driver and occupants are potential persons of interest in the incident, he said.
Lieutenant Mike Denton told News On 6 Sunday that they originally believed the man came to the store in a red vehicle, but then surveillance video showed he left on foot. On Monday, investigators released photos of the red Chevy Impala.
Authorities have located and interviewed the customer who was filling up his vehicle when the robbery took place. He was shaken up but unharmed, Woodruff said.
Police described the robber as a black male in his 20s, 5'8" to 5'10" with a slender build. He was wearing a gray mask, gray hoodie with green lining, jeans, white shoes and gloves.
