GULFPORT -- Police have asked for help to identify two teens or men who robbed a Family Dollar store on Dedeaux Road on Monday night.

The two entered the store at 9:24 p.m., demanded money and ran away, police Sgt. Damon McDaniel said.

Surveillance pictures released Tuesday show the two as they entered the store, with one holding out a gun.

The store is at 13137 Dedeaux, a few blocks west of Mississippi 605.

No injuries were reported.
