The owner of the store connected to the Citgo, Riverside Food Mart, told News 5 crews on the scene that around 8 p.m. he heard a guy came in with a gun with the intent to rob the store. The owner then said that the guy pointed a gun at one of the clerks. The second clerk then “freaked out” and pulled out a gun. The owner said, “I think he fired a shot and missed.” The suspect had already moved, starting to leave the store when the shot was fired. When the robber was exiting the store, he fired a couple shots as if warning the clerks not to follow him.

Ashlon Smith, the homeowner of the house across the street where police were investigating a gunshot through the window, spoke with News 5 crews saying that a stray bullet came through the glass window in her front door and it struck the TV. Smith said that police have since taken away the TV. She said that luckily no one was in the living room at the time. Her son had just walked through the living room on his way to his bedroom to do homework and that everyone else was in their bedrooms. Smith says that she’s lived there 10 years and has never seen anything like this before and that it’s normally a quiet street.
