Authorities dispatched a police helicopter and several squad cars to look for the suspect, who is described as a black man, about six feet tall and 200 pounds, wearing a dark hooded jacket, a scarf and white gloves.

Several readers wrote to us to report hearing or seeing the helicopter. One reader told us they saw four police cars speeding toward the gas station.

    I heard the police cars and wondered what was going on. Sheesh.
