It happened at O'Reilly Auto Parts in the 4800 block of East Lincoln.

Just after 8 p.m. Tuesday, a man wearing a bandana over his face walked in with a gun and ordered the three employees to the floor. He then told one of them to open the safe.

After the suspect took the cash, he ran from the store. No one was hurt.
