Authorities say an armed robbery took place around 10 p.m. Wednesday at the Grab and Go Market, also known as the Crossroads Market, at the Junction of US 25E and KY 233 in Gray.
Knox County Deputy Drew Wilson was only two minutes away when he received the call.
Store employees described the robber as a white male wearing an orange ski mask over his face and dressed in a gray sweatshirt and pants.
