Richmond business owner robbed at gunpoint

A San Pablo Avenue business owner was robbed at gunpoint Friday afternoon after three masked men emerged from a car in the business's parking lot and entered the building.

The owner of Master Tint, located at 12654 San Pablo Ave, was stripped of his Louis Vutton wallet, a bracelet valued at $27oo, and an iPad by armed robbers who entered the business just before 3 pm Friday, according to reports from KTVU.

A video circulating on Twitter shows a white Chrysler 300 pulling into the parking lot and three masked men with guns rushing into the business and tussling with the owner.
