UPDATE: 15-year-old arrested in West Seattle 7-11 robbery

UPDATE for Jan. 11
The day after Seattle Police released surveillance footage of a young man pulling a gun on a West Seattle 7-11 clerk in an attempted robbery, a tip came in leading authorities to Kent where they arrested a 15-year-old and booked him into the Youth Service Center for robbery.

SPD said detectives recovered a BB gun likely used in the stickup during their investigation.

They are no longer looking for the other two males pictured in surveillance footage, "as it appears they were not involved in the robbery," SPD said.

SLIDESHOW: Cops need help identifying West Seattle 7-11 robbers
Seattle police are asking the public for help in identifying three young men (estimated between 18 and 20 years old) who robbed a 7-11 clerk at gunpoint in West Seattle last month, and they have released pretty clear surveillance photos to bring these guys to justice.

The three men walked into the convenience store at the corner of S.W. Admiral Way and California Ave S.W. around 1:30 a.m. on Dec. 2, grabbed batteries and candy bars from the shelves and walked up to the clerk to ask for cigars, according to police.

Instead of producing identification for the tobacco when asked, one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the clerk.

Police said the suspect demanded cash from the register, “but ended up leaving … with only candy and batteries.”

The suspects fled the scene in a burgundy or dark green Ford Explorer, according to authorities.

If you recognize the suspects, please contact the SPD Robbery Unit at 206-684-5535.
