UPDATE: Police say the robbery was a ripoff that originated from an online posting for speakers for sale.

A Clovis man posted he was selling speakers and when a man showed up to look at them, he says he just took them without paying.

The man said the guy fired shots as he left.

Police closed Minnewawa to search but the guy was long gone.

The Clovis Police Department got a call of an armed robbery in progress at a home near Alluvial and Minnewawa Avenues on Thursday.

The call came in just after noon and the caller said shots were fired but there were no injuries.

Police say the original call was for the wrong address which delayed the response time.
