Two gunmen held up a Johnston County ABC store shortly before it closed Monday night and made off with an undetermined amount of cash, police said Tuesday.

The men wore black clothing and masks when they went into the store at 12487 U.S. 70 Business West about 8:55 p.m., police said in a statement asking for anyone with information about the incident to contact them.

ABC stores close at 9 p.m.

Police said witnesses were able to describe the men only as black and standing between 5-foot-8 and 6 feet tall.

Police distributed a surveillance-camera shot of one of the men.
