Surveillance video released by the Metropolitan Police Department shows about 20 young people packing into the store in the 4400 block of Benning Road at 9:35 a.m. Monday. They come in one after another; only some of theyoung people obscured their faces.
After the store is full, some of the youths grab chips, snacks and water and rush back out.
