Fresno Police say about 8 p.m. Wednesday night, a man wearing all black walked into the Auto Zone on Blackstone and Harvard. At first police say he looked like any other customer, but things quickly changed.

"...walked to one of the aisles, grabbed an item and placed the item on the front counter, showed the clerk a handgun and demanded money," said Jose Garza, Fresno Police Department.

Police say the suspect then ran out of the front door and out of sight. No customers were inside the store at the time of the robbery and both clerks inside were not hurt.

There is no word if this robbery is part of any bigger robbery series in the area.
