|Hopkinsville gas station robbed at gunpoint|
Hopkinsville Police are investigating the armed robbery of an East 9th Street gas station from late last night.
The report from Officer Jason Brent says the incident happened just after 11pm at the 1411 East Ninth Shell Station when 70-year old Gopalbhai Patel of Hopkinsville was outside waiting for his son—19-year old Yogi Patel—to close the store.
The younger Patel was approached inside by a black male yielding an assault-type rifle demanding cash and the report says another suspect attempted to rob the older Patel outside, with the father sustaining a minor injury.
The suspects got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and the investigation continues.
