Police release surveillance videos of Apple Store shooting suspectArlington County police are still looking for the armed suspect who shot and seriously wounded an Apple employee at the Apple Store Clarendon this past friday and have released a pair of surveillance videos to the public that could aid their search.
The first video shows a male suspect wearing a baseball cap and brandishing a gun enter the rear of the store around 10:13 a.m., where he's met by a female retail employee. He then leads the employee towards the store's stock room at gunpoint, out of the camera's view.
A second video shows the suspect flee out the same door less than two minutes later, still holding the handgun. As AppleInsider was among the first to report friday, the suspect at some point during those two minutes fired a single shot that caught the employee in the right shoulder.
According to the Washington Post, a store employee who heard the shot found the injured employee and made the initial 911 call, while a doctor who was nearby assisted the victim until medics arrived.
The 26-year old victim remained hospitalized over the weekend, where she was list in "serious but stable condition," according to the paper. Although she briefly spoke with investigators, she was reportedly under sedation and will likely be interviewed again.
There were reportedly about three dozen people in the Virginia-based Apple store at the time of the shooting. Police have described the suspect as an "African American male in his 20s or 30s, 5-foot-7 to 6 feet tall and with a medium build."
He may have had facial hair or been wearing a fake beard at the time of the botched robbery. He was last seen "wearing a light-colored, short-sleeve shirt, light-colored pants and a dark cap with lettering."
