The man then began to walk toward the door to leave when the clerk tried to stop him by blocking the doorway.

The man pulled a gun on the clerk and left the store in a blue-and-white sports car, police said.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic adult, about 5-foot-6 inches tall, wearing a blue-and-white winter coat, black pants, and a bandana across his face.
