Police are looking for two men who robbed a 7-Eleven with a shotgun early Thursday morning in Holme Circle.

The suspects entered the store at 2981 Welsh Road just after 2 a.m., and one of the men pulled out a brown sawed-off shotgun and demanded money from the cash register, authorities said.  

In a video released by police, the man with the shotgun is seen pointing the weapon at the clerk during the robbery until both suspects leave the store. Police said the two men fled in the direction of Old Ashton Road with cash and cigarettes.

Authorities said one of the suspects spoke with a Eastern European accent.

Anyone with information about the robbery or suspects is asked to contact Northeast Detectives at 215-686-3153/3154. All tips will be confidential. ••
