That same suspect then went directly to the complainant’s truck and got into the driver seat. The second male suspect returned to the SUV and that vehicle backed out, striking a gas pump. As the suspect began to reverse out in the complainant’s vehicle, the complainant ran out of the store and jumped into the bed his truck. The SUV then followed the complainant’s truck out of the parking lot, drove a few streets away, and stopped. The suspect in the SUV walked up to the complainant and pointed a pistol at him while ordering him to get out of the bed of his truck or he would kill him.
