The Athens County Sheriff's Office now reports it was the Little General Store where the robbery happened, not the Marathon Station.

A gas station robbed at gun point in Athens County Sunday night and now deputies search for the masked man.

The Sheriff's Office says it all happened around 10:30 Sunday night at the Marathon Station in Albany.

Investigators say a white man with a bandana over his face entered the gas station with a gun and demanded money. He told the clerk to put the register money in his bag.

Deputies say he then left with a second person driving a yellow Chevy Cavalier with no license plate. They say a witness followed the car onto SR 681 South when the passenger of the Cavalier started shooting at the witness car.

No one was injured.
