MADISON- A police officer was on duty at the entrance of the Madison Walmart Sunday night after the giant retail store was robbed at gunpoint overnight Saturday.
According to police, two men entered the store about ten minutes apart to case the area. The two were on their cell phones when they left together and separated in the parking lot.
Around 2:40am, three masked men bombarded the store and ordered customers and associates to the ground. The Walmart manager was held at gunpoint while the masked men demanded money.
Police say the three masked men were wearing latex gloves and ran out of the store and hopped into a small dark colored SUV waiting in the parking lot. The two men who originally entered the store to check the area out are believed to be the driver and passenger of the getaway car.
No one was injured.
