A gunman robbed a High's convenience store in Millersville Wednesday night, getting away with an undermined amount of money.
Police say the man walked into the store, in the 500 block of Old Mill Road, at about 8:50 p.m. and told a clerk, "This is a robbery, I want your money."
Police say the clerk laughed, then the man showed her his gun. The clerk gave him money and the man rode away in a small white car driven by another man. Police are still investigating.
