Police said three men — two of them with handguns — entered a 7-Eleven in the 3000 block of East University Drive at around 5 a.m. Sunday and demanded an unspecified amount of cash from the store’s clerk, according to a police report.

No injuries or gunshots were noted in the report. The suspects made away with the cash.

A Denton police spokeswoman declined Monday to give descriptions of the three suspects because investigators were still following leads in the aggravated robbery case.
