Witnesses said they were watching a football game when two men stormed into the business. They said one of the men pulled out a handgun and ordered people to get down.

“He kept pointing it at me because I kept looking at him and he said, ‘Get your head down! Get your hands over your head!’ So I finally did, and they were in and out within 30 to 45 seconds,” said Ben Wnuczk, who witnessed the robbery.

Witnesses said the men made an employee open a safe, and they ran out with an undisclosed amount of cash.
