The clerk later identified as Simon Khalil, 35, read the note and threw it back at the suspects. One of the suspects pulled out a handgun from his waistband and pointed it at Khalil. As Khalil engaged the suspect in a brief conversation, the second suspect pulled a sawed-off rifle from a backpack and also pointed it at Khalil.
