MARQUETTE — Two men who allegedly robbed a residence at gunpoint Friday are being sought by Marquette police.

Police responded to 515 North Front Street around 9:30 p.m. Friday night. The robbery suspects had already fled the scene toward the one hundred block of Ohio Street before officers arrived.
