OCALA, Florida (WKMG) - A gunman wearing a Cookie Monster hat robbed an Ocala store and threatened the clerk, saying if police were contacted, "people outside will shoot you."
The robbery occurred around 9:20 p.m. Wednesday at the Gator's Chevron at 4410 W. Highway 326.
According to the Marion County Sheriff's Office, a man entered the store, pointed a small silver handgun at the clerk and demanded money.
