'Guns, now, let's go!' robber yells, but gets nothing

A gun-toting man entered a Fort Worth pawn shop last week, police said, and demanded guns.

Frustrated or angry that there were none in the store, he fired a round at a flat-screen TV and then left, according to reports.

The robbery was reported at 1:05 p.m. Friday at the Cash America Pawn Shop in the 6600 block of McCart Avenue, in southwest Fort Worth, according to reports.

A store manager told police that the masked man walked into the business with a backpack and produced a handgun.

He fired one round into the ceiling and yelled, "Guns, now, let's go!"

People in the store were shown on surveillance video recoiling from the man.

"The manager informed the suspect that the store did not have any guns," Lt. Paul Henderson, police spokesman, said in a news release.

The man, he said, briefly looked around the store.

"Then (he) exited but not before shooting a Sony flat-panel television as he left," Henderson said.

The man, also seen on the video, was black and wore a black baseball cap with a white logo, a black "doo rag" and a red bandanna over his face, Henderson said.

He also wore a long black T-shirt, black shorts, long white socks and red high-top sneakers.

Anyone with information leading to an arrest may be eligible for a cash reward, Henderson said. For information, call Detective J.E. Livesay, 817-392-4379 or call Crime Stoppers at 800-469-TIPS.

All calls are confidential, Henderson said.
