SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are seeking information on a robbery at a store on the 3200 block of Montgomery Street, at about 9:54 p.m. on Wednesday.

Police responded to a call that a male suspect with a gun entered the store and demanded cash before fleeing the scene in a white Toyota Camry that was waiting outside.
