The owners were reportedly preparing to close their store when a man approached the establishment. Outdoor surveillance footage shows the unidentified shooter allegedly forcing Trinh to go inside the building, Click Orlando reported.
“A subject dressed in black, hoodie up, approached Tony as he is putting items in his car and getting ready to close the store so that subject forced him – Tony – back into the store in which the robbing and shootings occurred,” Mount Dora Interim Police Chief Brett Meade said.
The shooter was later caught on camera leaving the scene with a white bag. Police have yet to release details related to the stolen items.
