NEWARK, Del. -

Police in Newark, Delaware are searching for two suspects involved in the armed robbery of a book buy back event.

Police say the shooting happened around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday at a Lieberman's book buy back tent on Elkton Road in the parking lot of a Buffalo Wild Wings.

Police say a 29-year-old man was working as a clerk in the tent, which purchases used books from college students, when two suspects showed him a handgun and demanded money.

The suspects were last seen leaving the area under a pedestrian underpass leading to the Rodney Dining Complex and then northbound, parallel to the CSX railroad tracks.

The clerk was not injured.

Police say the suspects got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Investigators describe the first suspect as a black man, between 25 to 30-years-old with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants. The second suspect is described by police as a 25-year-old white man with brown or black hair and a stocky build.
