King and Ronaldo Rodriguez, another Car Spa employee, tried to keep everyone calm, but it was difficult, they said, because they didn’t know what the armed man was going to do next, the article continued.

“He literally had his gun out where everyone can see, and he was just loading it,” said King.

“I see him literally look at both of us and pointing the gun out,” Rodriguez said.
