Hillsborough County deputies are investigating three early morning armed robberies in eastern Hillsborough County. 

On Tuesday morning at approximately 3:25 a.m., a male wearing a mask and gloves entered the Speedway gas station located at 13179 Highway 301 South in Riverview, armed with a short barrel shotgun. A vehicle was not seen at the gas station. 

At approximately 4:07 a.m., a black male with short dreads, wearing a long sleeve white shirt, entered the 7 Eleven located at 10016 McMullen Road in Riverview, armed with a handgun. He was seen in a white vehicle, possibly a Nissan. 

At approximately 4:25 a.m., a black male with the same description as the 4:07 a.m. robbery entered the 7 Eleven located at 16781 Fishhawk Boulevard in Lithia, armed with a handgun. 

It is believed that both 7 Eleven robberies are possibly the same suspect. 

In all three robberies, the armed suspect demanded money and ran from the scene after receiving cash. There were no injuries reported in any of the robberies.
