Oops — robber leaves gun behind

A bumbling robber attempting to hold up a north Minneapolis convenience store left a crucial piece of evidence behind: his gun.

The suspect walked into the E & L Market at 2211 Lowry Av. N. Thursday night and demanded money.

The robber covered his face with something in one hand so he could not be identified. But then he made a critical error.

“He set his gun down on the counter to pick up the cash,” said Sgt. Tammy Diedrich, a Minneapolis Police Department spokeswoman. “The clerk grabbed the gun.”

The robber dropped the cash and fled.

No one has been arrested.
