KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A man is still on the run following a robbery at a Powell convenience store Sunday evening. According to the Knox Co. Sheriff's Office, the suspect walked into the Lee's Food Mart on Clinton Highway around 7:00 p.m.

He asked the clerk to make change for a dollar, then pulled out a handgun. Pointing the gun at the clerk, the man took money from the register. He then fled on foot, heading south on Clinton Highway.
