GENERAL NARRATIVE
On April 20, 2016 at approximately 10:00 PM, an armed suspect robbed the Midfield Market, located at 1600 Fairview Avenue in Kingsport. The suspect was dressed in black from head to toe and was carrying some sort of long gun. He threatened the clerk, demanded money, and fled with an undisclosed sum.
