Two men in ski masks had entered the store, with one pointing a handgun at a cashier and telling the employee to stay put, said police spokeswoman Natalie Litofsky.

One other employee in the kitchen of the store was directed to do the same while the pair took cigarette cartons and cash from the register, Litofsky said.
