According to Sgt. Mark Marino, Gilbert police spokesman, Jacob Nathaniel Cooper walked into the store at 750 N. Gilbert Road about 2 p.m. and grabbed a can of Tilt malt liquor.

He passed the cash register and pulled a gun from underneath his shirt when a security guard asked him to stop.

Cooper never pointed the gun at anyone, but he made it outside and dropped it in a trashcan before the security guard wrestled him to the ground.
