Pismo Beach police are searching for two suspects in connection to a reported armed robbery and attempted homicide at a 7-Eleven convenience store Sunday morning.
According to a press release sent to KSBY News, Pismo Beach police officers were dispatched to the 7-Eleven store on South Dolliver Street shortly before 6 a.m. for a report of a robbery that had just occurred.
One of the suspects cornered the victim behind the register counter as the other suspect stole lottery tickets and cigarettes, according to Pismo Beach police.
