But 10 minutes minutes after he left, he returned with two
accomplices, one of whom pointed a gun at the store owner. When a
female employee sought refuge behind a steel door, the gun-toting

arrived, while his accomplices fled only to be apprehended by
police. The store owner suffered a gunshot wound to his hand.
