A juvenile suspect got away with cash after allegedly robbing a store in Governor’s Square Mall last night.
The report from Clarksville Police says a cashier told officers a juvenile black male wearing all black clothes and a black ski mask approached her with a handgun just after 8pm and demanded all of the cash in her register.

The investigation continues and no arrests have been made in the incident.
