Watch: Group of masked men responsible for robberies

Investigators believe four men were involved in the robbery - with two men parking on the side of a near fast food restaurant in a white impala to serve as look outs.  Two other men wearing masks and carrying AK-47s went inside the gas station and demanded money from the gas station clerk.

Shortly before that gas station was robbed, police say they believe the same crew robbed the BP gas station at Seven Mile Road near I-75.
