Phoenix police are investigating an armed confrontation at an Ahwatukee grocery store.

Sgt. Jonathan Howard said officers were searching the neighborhood around Chandler Boulevard and 44th Street for two men who threatened a man with a gun after stealing from the store.

Police swarmed the Safeway at 40th Street and Chandler Boulevard.

Howard said investigators were still gathering detailed descriptions of the suspects.

Police closed Chandler Boulevard for the investigation but the road has since reopened.

Police expect to have surveillance video from the store on Tuesday.

There were no reports of injuries and the store remained open for business.
