According to police, the man walked in and brandished a black semi-automatic pistol. He pointed the gun at Ledaile Causey, the cashier and demanded money. Causey gave him the money from her register, police said.
The man, however, “became irate” and pointed the gun at Edmund Garcia, also a store employee.
“The subject stated ‘I will shoot you if I don’t get more money,’” police said in a news release.
