On Saturday, October 5, 2013 at 11:25 pm the suspects entered the AM/PM and attempted to commit a "beer run". The store clerk tried to stop the suspects and one of the suspects began to physically assault the clerk by punching him repeatedly and hitting him with a box of beer. As the suspects exited the store the clerk followed and the other suspect punched the clerk. The suspects entered a dark blue Chevy Avalanche where one of the suspects grabbed a black handgun. The clerk then retreated back into the store.
