Clyde Barrow entered this store and took a loaf of bread to the register. Asked if he needed anything else he said "yes, half-dozen eggs and some lunch meat" and handed over a dollar. The clerk looked down to make change. Clyde flashed a gun and began to rifle the till. Another employee, Howard Hall, called "young man, you can't do that". Clyde cursed, hit Hall's face and opened fire with three to the chest. Hall fell and Clyde stepped over to shoot one more as he lay.
