FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - Isabella County Deputies are searching for an armed man accused of robbing a convenience store at gun point. Investigators say the gunmen fled when the store owner pulled out a gun of his own.

It happened at the corner of Isabella and Broadway road at 1:40 am on Tuesday morning. The man entered the store wearing a knitted style hat and face mask. The clerk told deputies the man pulled a hand gun from the pocket of his hooded sweatshirt and demanded money. The store owner says he pulled a hand gun on the suspect, and the suspect then ran from the store.
