KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – Stunning surveillance video posted to YouTube by the Kansas City Police Department shows an armed man point a gun directly at a Jimmy John’s employee’s head during a robbery.

The crystal-clear video, posted Thursday, shows the suspect placing his order with an employee at the cash register before pulling a gun out of his hoodie pocket, demanding all the money from the register.

The Jimmy John’s employee remains completely composed as he empties the drawer of all the paper bills, handing them to the man before the suspect leaves the store.

The video’s caption reads:

“At 9:15 p.m. April 26, 2017, officers with the KCPD were dispatched to the Jimmy Johns located at 3900 Broadway Blvd. in regard to an armed robbery. An unknown black male wearing a light blue hooded sweatshirt entered the restaurant, placed an order, then pointed a gun at the cashier demanding money from the register. Police are requesting assistance in identifying the suspect in the surveillance video.”

Police have since posted an update, saying the suspect has been identified and is now in custody.

Would you have been able to stay as calm as this cashier if you were in the same situation?

  1. The gun jammed when he racked the slide. The slide did not return all the way back to its original position. Part of the chrome barrel is visable, whereas none was visable before. The weapon cannot fire like that.

  2. exactly, when he racked the slide, he did it way to slow, leaving a live round “stove piping” out. I wouldn’t be too scared either, perfect time for me to use my own selfdefense item 🙂 Saving tax payers tens of thousands of dollars
