Meanwhile, all the employees and a customer hid inside a storage room. An employee told an officer the man may have had a gun since his hands were in his pocket.

No one was hurt in the incident.

Major Stephen Fore with DeKalb Police said everyone in the store took the right approach.

"They didn't escalate the situation by approaching him or trying to prevent him from doing what he intended to do," Fore said. "He may not have shown a weapon in this instance but that does not mean he may not escalate. As these crimes continue, they may get more violent so we would like to get him off the streets."
