Upon arriving at the scene, officers spoke with a female employee who informed them that she had just been robbed at gunpoint. The female employee informed investigating officers that two male subjects had entered the business as she was closing. She advised officers that one of the male subjects brandished a firearm and instructed her to give him the money from the cash register. Fearing for her life she complied.
