A masked man with a rifle held up the Circle K on Capital Circle Southwest at about 4 a.m. Wednesday. Deputies are looking for a short white manabout 5'5", 185 pounds.

Deputies say they're seeing more and more of these "long gun" holdups.

"That's not a concealable weapon, so when someone comes in for a robbery with a shotgun, it's very obvious it's a premeditated robbery. It's not something of convenience, it's where they've thought this out,” said Leon County Sheriff's Office spokesman Chris Chase.

Deputies warn folks to be extra alert when pulling up to any store this time of year so you don't unwittingly wind up in the middle of a robbery.
