LA MESA, Calif. (KGTV) -- La Mesa Police are searching for several suspects they say robbed three Grossmont High School students at gunpoint.

According to the city, the students were walking westbound on Murray Drive just before 1 p.m. Wednesday when a blue Nissan Sentra pulled into a Shell gas station and stopped.

The driver of the car got out of the vehicle and demanded money from the students. As the first suspect demanded cash, a passenger in the vehicle pointed a handgun at the victims.

After taking money from two of the students, the suspects left the scene.

Police described the first suspect as a light-skinned Hispanic man, approximately 17 or 18 years old, with brown eyes, a mustache, and groomed eyebrows.

The second suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 18-19 years old, with black wavy hair and light-colored tips. He was last seen wearing an orange long-sleeved shirt.

Anyone with information is asked to call the La Mesa Police Department at 619-667-1400.
