Members arrived and learned that a male was in the electronic section of the store, spoke with a sales representative and inquired about ipads.

The employee tried to stop the individual but the male said he had a gun, so the employee backed off.

Wearing a dark baseball cap
Wearing a black fall jacket

Wearing a medical mask
