"As a veteran, I am outraged by the conduct of the individuals in the surveillance video," Sanford Police Chief Cecil Smith said in a statement. "We are asking for assistance from the community to bring these individuals to justice as soon as possible as this matter is of great important."
About 8 p.m. Thursday, the veteran was heading to the store to buy some bread when a man walked up to his car in the 100 block of Country Club Circle — near the Goldsboro Elementary Magnet School.
"I want your vehicle and I'm going to take it," the gunman said, according to police.
The veteran said he wasn't going to get out of his car.
So the suspect walked to the driver's side of the car, pointed a gun in the victim's face and said, "We will shoot you if you don't get out."
