Hermiston Police Investigate Armed Robbery

Hermiston Police are asking for the public's help in finding the men responsible for robbing a gas station Saturday night.

Investigators say two partially masked Hispanic men approached two employees of the Westside 76 Station around 10:30 p.m., allegedly displayed a firearm and demanded the deposit bag from the business.

The two men took off on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

While running from the scene a single round was fired in the area where the two men fled.  Police do not believe the gun was fired intentionally, but rather may have accidentally went off while the suspects fled.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Hermiston Police Department.
