Dallas Stars players evacuate facility in police lockdown

FRISCO, Texas (AP) Three Dallas Stars players were among those evacuated from the NHL franchise's practice facility Friday as police searched for suspects in an armed robbery.

Frisco police barricading an area around the Dr. Pepper StarCenter evacuated everyone from the building as they investigated what they believe to be multiple suspects in the arena parking garage. The Dallas Morning News reports the players were Stars left wing Jamie Benn, defenseman Jason Demers and right wing Ales Hemsky.

Police say the suspects robbed a jewelry store and eventually drove into the garage.

No injuries have been reported. Frisco is about 10 miles north of Dallas.
