Wearing a black hoodie, blue bandana as a mask and carrying a distinct Dallas Cowboys backpack/bag, he pulled a gun on the clerk. He then demanded money and the clerk started to open the cash registers. But when he didn’t move fast enough, the suspect hit the clerk on the top of his head with the butt of the gun, police said. He stole money, and fled northbound out of the store.
The clerk suffered minor injuries.
