MOORHEAD, Minn. (Valley News Live) - Three people are in custody after one of them got into a man’s vehicle with a gun while he was filling on with gas at a Moorhead gas station.

Officers were dispatched to the Travel Mart at 725 Highway 75 North around 3:40 p.m. on Thursday afternoon for a report of an attempted aggravated robbery. A man says he was in his vehicle at the gas pumps when someone entered his passenger side, displayed a handgun, and ordered him out of the vehicle.

The victim got out and went inside the store, where he and the clerk locked the entrance. The suspect approached the door while showing the gun, but then left in the vehicle they arrived in.

A short time later, officers pulled over the suspect vehicle and four adults were detained. During the investigation, the primary suspect was identified and a handgun was found in the vehicle.
