The 7-Eleven in Rand is closed following reports of an attempted armed robbery.

The incident happened just after 3:30 Friday morning.

A man walked up to the window with a gun and demanded money.  The clerk refused and ran away to the back room.

The robber got away with nothing.

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Department is investigating the incident.

The 7-Eleven in Rand is no stranger to getting robbed.  The store has been robbed multiple times since the beginning of the year.

The gas station has sophisticated surveillance cameras set up around the store.  The system has helped deputies catch other robbery suspects in the past.
