GASTONIA, NC (WSOC) — Disturbing cellphone video captured the chaotic moments a group of people ransacked a Gaston County Quik Trip, injured a clerk and reportedly attacked and robbed a young man and his handicapped stepfather.
The cellphone video was taken at the QT on West Franklin Boulevard in Gastonia early Sunday morning.
The video shows the store torn apart, products from the gas station all over the floor and a worker who appeared to be badly hurt, kneeling on the ground holding a cloth to her head.
Gastonia native and activist Martino Brice said the video should be an eye-opener.
“It’s like the cry you heard around the city,” Brice said.
