Emma Discher with NOLA.com reports that the employees asked a customer to put on a mask to shop in the story.

The customer then walks to his car and, instead of donning a mask to help protect others, he decided to try to harm them. He retrieved a handgun from the car, returned to the store, and fired several shots at employees. (The story made no mention of injuries.)

New Orleans authorities are trying to identify the man.
