According to an incident report, Treece walked into the kitchen at the restaurant and threatened employees with a gun, telling them to lay on the ground and give him their cell phones.
The suspect told the manager to take him to her office and open the safe. He then told the employees in the kitchen to also go back of the restaurant near the office.
