Lower Greenville 7-Eleven robbed, employees locked in back room

The 7-Eleven store at Richmond and Greenville was robbed at 4am Thursday morning by at least two gunmen.

According to the DPD offense report and BD's own sources, the gunmen entered the store and pointed their weapons at the employees, then locked them in a back room. They took $140 from the cash register, and $70 worth of cigarettes. No injuries were reported. Physical evidence specialists were still on the scene at 7am today.

This is the second 7-Eleven robbery in the East Dallas area in as many weeks. Late last week, the 7-Eleven on Garland Road south of Casa Linda Shopping Center was also robbed at gunpoint. In that incident, the employee barricaded herself in the store room and called police.
