The incident happened shortly after 2:30 on that Sunday morning at the convenience store which stays open 24 hours daily.
The female store clerk was assaulted, multiple individuals then ransacked the store, opening & consuming food & beverage items. A video of the incident was posted on Facebook and one of the females is seen with her arms full of merchandise.
It took police about six minutes after being called to respond to the melee. When they did, the crowd of a dozen or more scattered and fled.
The video ended with a scuffle and what sounded like gunfire but nobody was shot.
Police say that while they've been able to identify the six suspects, they believe that others who participated should also be charged, but so far no others have been identified.
