NEW ORLEANS -- The NOPD is looking for a masked gunman who tried, but failed, to rob a Lower Garden District business.

Police say it happened just after 11:30 p.m. Sunday in the 2100 block of Magazine Street.

A man seen in surveillance video wearing a hat and red bandana walked in and demanded cash. The NOPD says the cashier was safely behind bulletproof glass and called police before the man took off.

The Shell gas station owner tells Eyewitness News this is the first attempted armed robbery his business has ever encountered in almost three decades.

If you can help solve either of these cases, you're urged to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
