On Sunday, October 6, 2019 at 3:14 pm, an unknown male walked into the 99 Cent store, located at 11898 Bissonnet, in Houston, Texas. The male approached the manager while holding a knife in one hand and a gun in another and demanded that she take him to the back office or he would start shooting people inside the store.
