Police are looking for two men they said were involved in an attempted armed robbery at a Family Dollar store.
MPD was called to the Family Dollar in the 3200 block of Hickory Hill on Friday.
They said one man came inside the store while another stayed outside as a lookout.
Officers said the suspect who came inside pointed a handgun at employees and demanded cash from the registers.
The employees were not able to open the registers, so the suspects took off without taking anything.
