Meanwhile, the man who finally got the gun away from the shooter spoke with FOX 10's Stefania Okolie.

"We walked in, we heard a gun shot," said the man, who did not want to be identified. "Guy tells us to get on the floor...He tried to lock the doors, and that's when he found us in the back and told us to go to the front. I felt like he was gonna kill us off."

The man said the suspect tried to shoot someone.

"I heard the gun jam, and he kept trying to fire but the gun was jamming, so at that point, I knew that I felt like the gun didn't work," said the man. "I walked up to him, and he tried to raise the gun to my head, and that's when I grabbed the gun and I wrestled him to the ground and just took the gun."

The man said it was during the time he wrestled the gun from the shooter that he cut his hand. The man said this is one wound he will never forget.

"I hit him with the gun a few times, and told everyone to get out of the store, and then I ran out of the store," said the man.
