State Police in Manistee are looking for clues after a gunman robbed a tobacco shop. Troopers tell 7&4 News that around 2:15 p.m. Wednesday a man walked into the Admiral Discount Tobacco Store on U.S. 31 and held up a handgun.
The man demanded cash and ordered the clerk and two customers to lay on the floor. He then grabbed the money and took off, according to State Police.
