SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A gunman robbed cash and golf clubs today from a store in the Kearny Mesa area of San Diego.

The gunman, who appeared to be in his early 40s, entered Fairway Golf in the 5000 block of Convoy Street and selected a golf bag and numerous clubs before heading to the register, where he pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded cash, according to San Diego Police Department Sgt.
