An adult female victim was robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot by three (3) suspects, described as Black males in their late teens to early 20's. Suspect (S-1), described only as "chubby", ran up to the victim while she was standing at the open, right front passenger door of her vehicle, which was parked in stall #605. S-1 said "hey big girl" to the victim as he ran towards her. S-1 used his body to wedge the victim into the front passenger seat. S-1 then reached into the vehicle and took the victim's purse from the front passenger seat. During the struggle with S-1, the victim saw suspect #2 (S-2), described only as having a slim build, standing in close proximity, just watching. The victim also saw suspect #3 (S-3), described as having short black hair "pointed upwards", wearing a dark colored top, and holding either a black shotgun or a rifle against his chest, which was pointed "upward." The suspects fled from the station in what the victim described as a "pearly" white colored, newer model Mercedes SUV, with a possible third row.
