The owner had been cleaning the parking lot and returned to his office to find a man inside. The man asked for a job, and the owner told him that he wasn't hiring at the moment. The man walked away, but returned a short time later -- with a handgun. After taking the owner's money and driver's license, the still-unemployed man fled.
