The man began to walk out of the store and was confronted by an employee, and that's when the suspect threatened to shoot the employee. No weapon was actually seen. He then fled on foot. Officers were on scene within two minutes of the initial call and attempted to track the suspect using a K-9, but were unsuccessful. 

Witnesses told police the man was black, in his 30's, about 5'7" with a medium build. Anyone with any information on this incident is asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
