An armed man robbed the Walgreens on the border of Shadyside and East Liberty tonight, fled on foot and got away with an undisclosed amount of money, police said.
The man -- who police say is black, 5-foot-6 and wearing a gray sweat suit -- entered the pharmacy at 5956 Penn Circle South around 10:15 p.m. carrying a black handgun, major crimes Lt. Daniel Herrman said.
His face was covered with a scarf, and he fled on Centre Avenue toward Whole Foods, Lt. Herrmann said.
The city crime unit is on scene, and detectives are investigating.
