“I look up at the door and there some guy there with an awfully big gun,” said Krueger.
On surveillance video it appears the lone gunman waved what police say was a “heavily modified pistol” around the room, ordering people on the ground and demanding their money and phones.
“I said not another punk trying to pull a punk move,” said Tony Tovar who refused to comply despite the pistol pointed in his side and face.
“I’m so tired of people in south city trying to muscle their way in with firearms or bad attitude or some kind of aggression,” said Tovar. “I wasn’t gonna comply.”
Tovar even went so far as to light up a cigarette while looking down the unsteady barrel. People who were there said after that, the robber settled for the cash drawer and left.
