Greenville Store Owner Robbed At Gunpoint

The owner of a Greenville store is still in shock after being robbed at gunpoint today.

Bennie Roundtree says robbers put a gun right to his face, asked for money then took a pocketbook, all the store's credit cards, fifteen dollars and a cigarette.

Roundtree explained that these type of crimes are starting to be the norm in his neighborhood.

"I didn't feel safe in the beginning because I knew we're out in the streets, and if the community doesn't get more involved, the police won't be able to solve it" Roundtree said.

Mr Roundtree says it's the second time his Bonner's Lane store has been robbed. Greenville police are still investigating.
