The footage shared by the police showed the suspects exiting a white Nissan Pathfinder. The three suspects, who were dressed mostly in black, also wore face masks and hoodies to hide their identities.
They were seen running with guns in a direction not visible on the camera. Upon their return, they hurriedly jumped back into the waiting vehicle before the car sped off quickly.
