SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The owners of a Citgo gas station in Shreveport are asking for the public's help finding the man who robbed their business.

Tony Rasheed said he, an uncle and another employee were there when the holdup happened at the gas station on Greenwood Road just before 9:45 p.m. March 15.

A male came inside and first pointed his gun at the two men by the door. Then he made his way over to the cash register and Rasheed.

"I just put my hands up. And he said, 'Money, give me the money.'

"He told me, 'You are going too slow. You have 5 seconds. I am going to shoot him; and after I shoot him, I am going to shoot you'," Rasheed recalled.

Rasheed said he put the money in a paper bag.

The gunman then apparently put all three of them in an area in the back then slowly walked out the store like he was a customer.

Rasheed said he then grabbed a gun and shot at the robber as he took off outside. No one was wounded.

Now the store's owners have released surveillance images and are offering a $500 reward to help police figure out who robbed the business.

"It's shocking," said Rasheed. "I've been here a long time, 13 years, and it's shocking.

"He needs to get a job or do something. God bless him."
