“The customer had a panicked look on his face and said he had just witnessed a white male adult, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs, enter the business with a handgun in a holster. He then watched the subject leave the store, enter a gray Jeep with black rims, and drive westbound on Taloga Road,” stated a sheriff’s news release.
