WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – A store clerk at King Foods and Meat Bazaar was shaken up over what he saw Wednesday evening.
In the store’s surveillance video, you see an 8-year-old boy walk in. “He went through the entry door and very quietly, very confidently,” the clerk says. “He was wearing like a motorcycle helmet, and he was wearing a sweater over his mouth. He was only showing his eyes.”
What happened next shocked everyone. The boy walked up to the cashier – and pointed a gun hidden underneath a sweater.
“He told the cashier ‘give me the f-ing money.'” The clerk and another employee quickly springing into action. “All of a sudden I’m so shocked. I don’t know if it’s a real gun or if it’s a fake gun, but my priority is to take it away from him because I don’t know.”
“I just turned his wrist and took it out from his hand. At that point, another coworker of mine grabbed him.” In the video, you can see the 8-year-old boy try to escape the grasp of the clerk. Investigators tell us the boy stole the gun from his mother.
