Las Vegas police are investigating a takeover-style robbery at a local Walmart on Monday morning.

It happened shortly before 11 a.m. at the store located near Tropicana Avenue and McLeod Drive.

Police say four people came into the store with guns and wearing masks and gloves and told people to get to the ground. Police said the suspects demanded money from the clerks.

The suspects arrived in a light-colored, newer model, four-door sedan, which was left parked in front of the store during the robbery. After the robbery the suspects fled out the front doors and into the suspect vehicle where they left before police arrived.

Police have released surveillance footage of three of the suspects and the suspect vehicle.

Fortunately, no one was injured.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
