Surveillance video from inside the store showed the robber, clad in a gray NBA hoodie and light-colored jeans, walk up to the clerk and briefly talk to the clerk before pointing to the register and pulling a handgun from his jacket pocket.READ MORE: Officials: 6 In Critical Condition After Stolen Vehicle Pursuit Ends In Multi-Vehicle Crash
