The suspect is described as wearing a black North Face jacket and white sneakers.



Surveillance video shows the suspect entering the store at 8:42 p.m. Friday. He pointed a handgun at the head of a worker who was stocking a freezer, forced the victim to the ground, and then jumped over the counter.
