HOWARD - Brown Co. sheriff's officials have released photos of the suspects in the Wednesday night robbery of a gas station.

Deputies say they were called to the Taylor St. BP just before 9 p.m. The clerk told them that, just a few minutes earlier, he had been counting the money draw at the counter in preparation for closing at 9 p.m. The clerk said two people walked into the southeast door. One of them walked up to the counter carrying a black semiautomatic gun and said, "give me all the cash." While the gunman was taking the cash, the second robber went behind the counter and put packs of cigarettes into a backpack. He then went back to the other side of the counter and put the money in the backpack. The two left the store and ran away to the southwest. Authorities tracked them to the area behind the 1700 block of Western Ave. in Green Bay.
