Herndon Police Seek Suspects in 7-Eleven Robbery

Gunshot fired during robbery; no injuries reported.

The Herndon Police Department is asking for the public's help in finding two men suspected of robbing the 7-Eleven at 1115 Crestview Drive. 

The two men entered the 7-Eleven at about 11:19 p.m. on Thursday and Suspect 1 pointed a handgun at the 7-Eleven employees, attempting to get them to open the cash register. 

Suspect 1 then fired a shot while the employees were trying to open the register. No one was injured. Suspect 2 acted as the lookout at the front door of the business during the robbery. 

Once the employees handed over an undisclosed amount of money, both suspects fled the store. 

Suspect 1 is described as a light-skinned male, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, 25-30 years old, medium build, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and jeans, with bulky white gloves. 

Suspect 2 is described as a light-skinned male, 5 feet 2 inches to 5 feet 5 inches, 20-25 years old, slim build, wearing a black North Face jacket and dark jeans, a black hat, and black and white sneakers. 

The Herndon Police Department is asking for help in locating the suspects. If anyone recognizes the suspects, their clothing, or have knowledge about the robbery, they're asked to contact the Herndon Police Department at 703-435-6846.

What does "light-skinned" mean? Are they black or white? How is anyone supposed to recognize them if we don't even know whether they were black or white? Political correctness runs amuk again!

I assume that "light-skinned" means that the perps were just that, light-skinned. There are many variations in peoples' colorations - from pinkish white, fair, nicely tanned, any number of brown hues into black. Mr. Sarson, at least you know, from the description, that you don't have to look for any dark skinned robbers.
