KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — An armed suspect robbed Lien's Store in Klamath Falls while hooded and wearing a Ghostface mask like the villain from the movie "Scream," according to the Klamath County Sheriff's Office (KCSO). The suspect is still at large.

A KCSO deputy responded to the store just after 9 p.m. on Tuesday, and employees told the deputy that their store had just been robbed by a mask-wearing suspect with a handgun. The suspect fled the scene before the deputy arrived.

The employees said that the suspect was a man, roughly 6' tall and slender.

"He was wearing a mask described as looking like what was popularized in the 'Scream' movies that covered all of his features as well as a dark-colored hoodie during the incident," said KCSO.

KCSO says that the store owner has been cooperating with them by supplying surveillance footage of the incident. Anyone with information about the incident or the subject should contact Sheriff’s Office Detective Duval at 541-851-8153
