SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Spokane police say a masked man who told his victims he wanted to be called "Robin Hood" robbed a pizza shop at gunpoint.

The Spokesman-Review reports (http://is.gd/ppPVDC ) that the Friday afternoon robbery at Pizza Pipeline led school officials to temporarily lock down nearby Shadle Park High School while police searched unsuccessfully for the gunman.

Sgt. Jason Hartman says the man told employees he didn't want to hurt them even though he pointed his gun directly at them.
