WEST PRICE HILL (FOX19) -

Cincinnati police say a gunman holding up a Family Dollar store off Ferguson Road took off Friday morning as officers swarmed.

He was captured in the wood line off Prosperity Place minutes later, about 10:30 a.m., police said.

No one was hurt in the robbery.

Someone inside the store called 911.
