Lancaster, PA- A man ran the wrong way at the wrong time following a convenience store holdup in downtown Lancaster early today.

Eric Payton, 41, of 13 E. Walnut St., was caught about 30 seconds after he allegedly robbed the A-Plus convenience store at North Prince and East Orange streets at 3:50 a.m., city police Lt. Peter Anders said.

Payton dashed north on Prince Street at the same time officers were rushing out of Lancaster police headquarters at Prince and West Chestnut streets to investigate an unrelated shots-fired call on North Water Street.
