In the video, a man can be seen coming into the store with his face covered and a gun in his hand. He can be heard demanding money.

The female employee was behind bulletproof glass and did not open the door. The perpetrator then fired several shots, according to police. One shot is said to have been fired into the bulletproof glass and police say five to six shots were aimed at an area under the counter.

Isom reports the woman is recovering and plans to go back to work.
