    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Police are investigating a robbery at a Wells Fargo at Jimmy Carter Boulevard and Buford Highway.

    Channel 2's Kerry Kavanaugh spoke with police and witnesses at the scene.

    Gwinnett police told her the robber may have used a grenade to threaten employees.

    The robbery happened about 9 a.m. Police said the robber flashed a note demanding money, then pulled out what appeared to be a grenade.

    He took the money and his grenade before fleeing the scene.

    There were no reports of injuries.

    Police don't know if the object was a real or fake grenade.

    Police told Kavanaugh that this is the third bank this robber has targeted in a week. The first was an attempted robbery at a Doraville bank and the second was a robbery in Buckhead. Police said he produced a note in all three attempts, but this was the first time he has shown the device that looks like a grenade.
