While everyone else was on the floor, an unnamed customer remained calm while sitting in his chair looking at the screen of his smartphone
As everyone squatted and squatted on the floor, the provocative and unaffected patron took a sip from a soda can before he took out his cell phone and stared at the screen.
When the shooter approached the man and tried to snatch the cell phone away from him while he put the barrel of the gun in the man's side, the customer simply refused to let go of his device, grab it back before he put it on the bar explained.
& # 39; He was just very hard about it, such as: & # 39; I'm not playing your game & # 39 ;, Krueger said to KMOV after the incident.
The attacker was briefly in disbelief there, seemingly uncertain about what to do. Eventually he went on and walked behind the bar while the stubborn customer said something to him before he put a cigarette in his mouth and lit it.
The shooter finally confronts the untouched customer, sticks the barrel of his gun into the side of the man, demanding that the man give up his phone

The shooter sees items pull from the shelves along the back wall of the bar while the customer blows his cancer stick away.
It seems that no money can be found behind the bar, so the robber walks back and stabs the barrel of his gun in the back of another customer who squatted in fear next to the stubborn cigarette smoker.
This victim quickly takes out his wallet and opens it to remove a few notes that he throws on the counter. The shooter grabs them and puts them in his pocket before he walks up the corridor and demands the same from another person on the floor.
He finally confronts Krueger, who was lying next to a table, and told the bartender to open the cash register, what he is doing before he lies face down on the floor behind the bar.
Eventually the shooter gives up robbing the stubborn customer who takes out a cigarette and starts smoking while the robber makes his way through the bar in search of valuables
Later the shooter orders the bartender to open the cash register, while another customer holds his hands in the air and blows away the steel cigarette smoke carelessly
& # 39; My biggest concern was for the people who sat there, & # 39; said Krueger.
The robber takes several bills from the cash drawer before he says something to Krueger, who gets up quickly and helps the shooter to empty the remaining cash contents of the register into a bag.
The cigarette smoker doesn't look impressed. The less cagey counterpart on his right has begun to smoke his own cigarette, perhaps to calm his nerves. He stands at the bar and holds his hands up between the traits.
The shooter leaves after emptying the register drawer.
