Krystal employee Tammy Green said she and a coworker had just stepped back into the kitchen when a masked gunman entered the restaurant with a handgun, demanding the cashier to give him money.

“It was the scariest thing I’ve been involved in,” Green said.

Troy Police Chief Randall Barr said the man entered the store at about 4:20 p.m. and retrieved an undetermined amount of money before fleeing the building, last seen running behind the Citi Trends building.
