An investigation is underway after First People’s Jewelers on the downtown Denton Square was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday morning.

The suspect, an approximately 5-foot-11-inch black male, entered the store and pointed a handgun at employees asking for cash, police said. After the employees complied, the suspect removed jewelry from several cabinets and then left on foot. About $800 and an unknown amount of jewelry were taken, according to Denton Police Department spokesperson Shane Kizer.

Police responded to a silent alarm call from First People’s Jewelers at 10:20 a.m., just 20 minutes after the store opened for the day.

It is unknown if the suspect fled by vehicle after leaving the store or if anyone else was involved.
