Law enforcement in Autauga County are looking for suspects involved in the armed robbery of a gas station near Prattville early Monday morning.

Central Alabama CrimeStoppers is offering its maximum reward of $1,000 for information leading to arrests in the case.

The attempted robbery started around 1 a.m. at the Chevron gas station on U.S. Highway 31 just north of Prattville.

Two men walked into the store -- one armed with a semi-automatic pistol and one with a shotgun. According to CrimeStoppers, two customers and a store clerk were held captive by the robbers. 

Witnesses told authorities that both suspects appear to be black males, slender, about 6' tall and in their late teens to mid-twenties.

A third person was waiting outside the business in a getaway vehicle. It's described as a gold colored four-door sedan, possibly a Mercury Marquis or Crown Victoria. It was last seen traveling south on Interstate 65 towards Montgomery.

If you can identify or know the whereabouts of these subjects, please call the police immediately or CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP.
