MONROE COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office is investigating after an armed robbery at a BP gas station, early Wednesday morning.

An attendant told authorities, three men entered the store located in the 1300 block of Rumble Road. While the attendant was sticking a drink cooler, one of the men went behind the counter and began to take money from the cash register.

The attendant said after confronting the male, the thief presented a weapon towards the attendant. The attendant, who was also carrying a weapon, fired a single shot in the direction of the unknown male but did not strike him.

All three accomplices fled the area in a dark-colored pick-up truck in the direction of Interstate 75.
