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

Frisco police barricading an area around the Dr. Pepper StarCenter evacuated everyone from the building as they investigate what they believe to be multiple suspects in the arena parking garage.

The Dallas Morning News reports the players are 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.
