The deli's owner says one man wearing a hooded sweatshirt entered the store asking to play the lotto. When told to wait his turn, the owner says he stormed out and later returned with the second suspect, who was wearing a mask and holding a gun. They ordered everyone inside to the back of the deli before stealing money.
