Three D.C. Convenience Stores Robbed Within an Hour

Police say three Northeast Washington convenience stores were robbed within an hour Tuesday morning.

Officers were first called to the 1400 block of H Street NE for a report of an armed robbery at a business. Police say three masked men entered the business at about 3:15 a.m. and robbed it. At least one of the men was armed with a gun. No one was injured.

Thirty-five minutes later, officers were called to a business in the 4800 block of Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue NE for another armed robbery committed by three to four masked men. A similar robbery was reported minutes later at a business located less than a mile away in the 4400 block of Benning Road.

At this time, investigators do not know if the robberies are related.
