Two men sought in an armed robbery at a NoMa convenience store this week have appeared in surveillance footage, according to authorities.
The robbery happened about 4:15 a.m. Monday in the 7-Eleven at 1315 2nd St. NE, near the NoMa-Gallaudet University Metro station.
The crime came three days after a man with a gun also robbed that 7-Eleven. It wasn’t immediately clear if the robberies were connected.
Video police distributed yesterday in connection with the most recent robbery shows two men with covered faces and hoods over their heads entering the store and going behind its counter. One of the men had a gun out.
The men then grabbed cash and cigarettes as two 7-Eleven workers stood nearby. The men then left.

The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for an armed robbery committed in the District of Columbia.
