The armed robbery took place just before 5 a.m. Tuesday.

A Walgreens in Edina was robbed by three people with guns early Tuesday morning. 

An Edina police spokesperson tells BMTN that the robbery took place at the Walgreens located at 6975 York Avenue, which is across the street from the east end of the Edina Galleria. 

The three armed suspects entered the Walgreens at 4:52 a.m. and used handguns to force employees to the back of the store.
