TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Police are searching for a suspect that robbed a Tyler dollar store at gunpoint Monday night.

Around 9:45 p.m., Tyler Police responded to a reported robbery at the Family Dollar location on the 500 block of South Southwest Loop 323.

One of the store workers told officers a man walked into the store and raised his shirt, displaying a handgun. The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of money and into a wooded area across Front Street.

According to a police, the suspect is described as a black male between 6'0'' and 6'2", weighing 160 to 175 pounds. The man was reportedly wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans, and has a sty under his right eye. Officers confirmed this description with other witnesses.

A search of the wooded area north of the store was unsuccessful.

No injuries were reported during the robbery.
