Surviving 7-Eleven clerk talks to ABC15 after arrest of suspect who killed his coworker

Maung Tun knows that he’s lucky to be alive.

The father and husband was working at the 7-Eleven on 16th Street and Southern Avenue on August 8--the night police say Joseph Fatigoni burst in and robbed the store.

"I was really worried and so terrified,” said Tun.
 
Surveillance video shows Fatigoni leading Tun and another clerk, Amanjeet Toor, towards the back of the store. Tun says the masked gunman made the two lay on their back with their hands against their heads. That’s when Tun heard the first gunshot.

"I just heard the sound of the fire. I couldn't think of anything that I could do in that situation,” said Tun.

Police say Toor was killed on scene. But Tun was spared as the gunman left the store. He no longer works at that 7-Eleven. Tun tells us that he thinks of Toor, also known as Sonny, nearly every day.

Police have charged Fatigoni with the deadly armed robbery. He faces three counts of armed robbery, two counts of kidnapping and one count of murder.

Tun says Fatigoni was a frequent customer.
 
"I wasn't expecting the shooter to be him because he often came to the store,” said Tun.
