ATLANTA -

Atlanta police say a man held up a CVS Pharmacy in northwest Atlanta overnight, cleaning out the cash register.  

It happened at the location on Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive.  Investigators say three employees were inside when the suspect came in with a gun.

Captain Tim Peek told FOX 5 the robbery happened just before closing, so most of the employees were at the front of the store at the time.  Police say the suspect got away without about $14,000.

The suspect remains at large.  Police are working to get video from the store's surveillance cameras in hopes it will help them track him down.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call the Atlanta Police Department.
