While most of SWLA were in or just getting into bed last night for the busy work week ahead, around 11:30 PM, somebody's child entered a convenience store on Highway 171 in Moss Bluff brandishing a pistol.

The suspect demanded money from the clerk. The terrified and nervous clerk opened the cash drawer and the suspect grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash and took off most likely on foot.
