TAMPA -- Police are looking for two men in the armed robbery Saturday night of an auto parts store.

No one was injured during the robbery, police said, and the robbers got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police said the men entered Discount Auto Parts at 2813 W Kennedy Blvd. just before 8 p.m. Saturday with white T-shirts covering their faces and demanded that the employees open the cash registers. One of the men had a double-barreled shotgun, police said.

Police were still seeking the men Sunday. They were described as black, both 19 to 25 years old, one 5 feet 8 and 180 to 200 pounds, the other 6-1 and 160 pounds.

They left the scene driving a late-1980s, dark-colored Ford Thunderbird.
