The suspect opens fire on the two staff members but they managed to trip emergency security devices. 

They run into a back room, leaving the raider on his own in the shop. 

However, as he tries to flee he realises he has been locked in by the security device.

The footage shows the man desperately trying to open the glass door and hitting it with his gun. 

He then reloads his small silver pistol, points it at the lock and fires several more rounds. 

The glass shatters and he smashes through it to escape the store. 

It is believed the suspect managed to escape before police arrived at the scene.  

It is not known whether either of the staff members were injured by the gunman.
