Madison Police Officers responded to an armed robbery at Northside Liquors (2801 N. Sherman Ave) at approximately 925am on 1/25/20.  Two B/M subjects had entered the store just minutes earlier, one of which was armed with a black handgun, and demanded money from the store official.  An innocent customer, inside the store, was immediately ordered to the ground by the suspects, and after an undisclosed amount of money was obtained, the suspects fled on foot towards N. Sherman Avenue.   

Officers arrived on scene and began checking for footprints, which were not found.  Suspicions then led police to the possible involvement of a vehicle, and after checking video surveillance cameras in the area, a silver/gray Hyundai sedan seemed to have some connection with the suspects in this case.  There were no reports of any injuries to parties at the scene, but the public is always encouraged to contact the Madison Police Department with any information that might further investigative aims by police; as this investigation continues.
