Detroit police have released surveillance video in hopes that you can identify a suspect in an armed robbery at a gas station on the city's east side last weekend.

According to police, it happened around 4 a.m. Saturday at the gas station in the 800 block of E. 7 Mile near I-75.

The victim was pumping gas when the suspect approached pointing a gun at time.

The suspect forced the 29-year-old man to put his hands on the car so he could search his pockets. He checked the victim's wallet and discovered there was no money inside. After finding out there was no money inside, the suspect walked away with his wallet.

Just a few seconds later, police say there was an exchange of gunfire between the suspect and victim, and the victim was not injured. It is not known if any of the victim's shots hit the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 313-596-1140 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
