The Billings Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that occurred Friday night on the city's West End.

Billings Police Sgt. Clyde Reid said a man entered Shooters Casino and Sports Bar, at 1600 Avenue D, shortly after 10 p.m. and pointed a handgun at a casino attendant.

The attendant gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash. The man then fled and was seen shortly after getting into a small black passenger car. 

A resident on the 800 Block of Avenue F called in a suspicious vehicle Saturday around 8 a.m. that matched the description of the car. The car, a black Nissan Altima, was impounded, police Sgt. Justin Jagers said. It is unclear where the car is registered, he said.

Detectives will wait for a warrant to be issued before they search the car for evidence, Jagers said.

Jagers said police are still searching for the robber, who is believed to be in his 20s and was wearing a ski mask.  

Jagers said surveillance footage hasn't yet been released.
