An Atlanta GameStop was held up at gunpoint, and the suspect stole cash from two registers, according to Atlanta police.
The incident occurred Wednesday at the GameStop at 1801 Howell Mill Road. Store employees told Atlanta police a man entered the store about 5:30 p.m, pulled a scarf over his face, then pointed a black automatic gun at an employee’s face. An employee told police the suspect said the gun was loaded and showed the clip.
The man told everyone to lie down except three other employees, whom he demanded fill a plastic Jimmy Jazz bag with cash in 20 seconds or he would shoot them, according to an APD release.
The incident was captured on surveillance video. The footage shows the suspect entered the store wearing a black and white Puma hoodie and brown pants. The man was holding a black semi or automatic handgun with a long magazine extending form the bottom, according to the release.
Several other employees were in the back of the store with the door closed and were not aware of the incident. Once the bag was filled the suspect left.
