Investigation into Liquor Store Robbery Continues

Raytown, MO – Raytown Police continue to investigate the robbery of a liquor store in the 6500 block of Raytown Road, which occurred on 01-02-2015. Two black males entered the store, demanded money and one of the males struck a female employee, which knocked her down. One of the males displayed a gun. When a male employee attempted to activate the alarm, he fell to the ground. The two suspects left the store. The male employee was transported to an area hospital for treatment to a wound to his head.

The male employee initially told the responding officers that he thought he tripped, causing him to strike his head, however, it was later discovered that he had most likely suffered a grazing gunshot wound to his head. He was treated at the hospital and has since been released.

The male suspects are described as being about 6’ tall, thin build, wearing dark clothing.

Raytown Police investigators believe that the liquor store robbery suspects may have been involved in other crimes, and have been diligently working with other law enforcement agencies to bring this case to a successful conclusion, which has restricted the release of information until today. We thank our community members that have remained patient through this process. The investigation into this robbery is ongoing, so in order to preserve the integrity of the investigation, and potentially others, no other information will be released at this time.

Anyone with information about this robbery, or any other crime, is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS (8477).
