An unidentified male subject, possibly Hispanic with a dark complexion and brown eyes, entered Log Cabin Liquor carrying a black small caliber semi-automatic handgun in his right hand. The suspect was wearing a blue baseball cap backwards, a dark blue or black bandana covering his face so only his eyes were visible, a gray sweatshirt, and dark blue jeans. The suspect demanded the money from the cash register drawer and cigarettes, which the clerk put in a plastic bag. The suspect demanded that everyone inside the store lie facedown on the floor and count to 100. A witness saw the suspect leave the store and remove the bandana from his face. The suspect possibly fled the area in a Gray Honda Pilot with a Hispanic female subject in the front passenger seat.
