Elyria Police released the photo above of one of the subjects being sought in conjunction with an armed robbery at C-Supermarket, 1227 Lake Ave., on Tuesday night.

Three black men walked into C-Supermarket on 1227 Lake Ave. at about 10 p.m. Tuesday, armed with a sawed-off shotgun and two handguns, according to Elyria police Capt. Chris Costantino. Two of the men looked about 6 feet tall and one was about 5-foot-7, Costantino said.

The men pointed their guns at the two employees and ordered one employee and the one customer in the store to get on the ground while a second employee was ordered to take money out of the register, Costantino said. The men told the three people in the store to cooperate or they would be harmed.

After the second employee handed over the money, the three men left the store on foot and headed southbound from the area, Costantino said.

Anyone who has information on the robbery should call Elyria Police at 323-3302.
