Trio caught on camera during robbery

OAKLAND - Three men, whose brazen armed robbery of an East Oakland market was caught on a surveillance camera, are being sought by police.

One of the men went behind the counter and put cigarettes and other items into a bag he had brought with him.

The man with the gun threatened to kill the clerk, told her repeatedly to hurry, and kept jabbing the pistol into her neck, Basa said.

After a few minutes the suspects fled. The clerk was not injured.

The robbery was not the first time violence has struck the tiny neighborhood store.

On Dec. 17, 1992, an Oakland fire truck ran into a pickup truck outside and slammed into the store, killing the then co-owner, a 28-year-old mother of three.
