Biloxi police want help to identify armed man who robbed a Woolmarket gas station

Police responded to the BP gas station on Shriner’s Boulevard in the Woolmarket community after an armed man wearing a ski mask robbed the store.

The man walked in with a gun about 7 a.m. Wednesday and demanded money, police Maj. Christopher De Back said. The man left on foot, he said.

Police sent search dogs around the store and investigators were trying to obtain surveillance video later Monday in hopes of identifying the man.
