BIRMINGHAM: A standoff is underway at a Wylam convenience store where three gunmen are holed up inside.
The ordeal began at 10 a.m. when, according to witnesses, three masked men burst into Rod’s Grocery on Seventh Avenue in Wylam. A customer said they immediately began demanding money and ran to the back of the store.
At that point, the customers and the store clerk fled, as did the store owner.
