“The victim noticed a second suspect standing behind the armed suspect, possibly keeping a lookout. The suspect then grabbed the laptop and his keys and escaped. The duo were captured on CCTV footage, and we are in the process of tracking them down. Thankfully, no one was injured, and no shots were fired,” he said.

The suspects were reportedly wearing dark clothes and may have used a getaway vehicle.
