Authorities are searching for a man who pulled out a gun on another shopper who was wearing a face-covering during an argument at a South Florida Walmart.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, an argument between the two shoppers escalated to the point where the unmasked man pulled the gun and threatened to kill the other shopper, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

The incident happened on July 12 at the Walmart in Royal Palm Beach.

Security footage shows that the unmasked man was pushing an older man in a wheelchair at the store.

The unmasked shopper was approached by another man, and after a verbal confrontation he made an obscene gesture, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

The Sheriff's Office says the unmasked man then pulled a handgun from his waistband and made the threat.

Authorities say the unmasked man then left the store in a white Chevrolet Equinox SUV.

Investigators are asking anyone who recognizes the man or has any other information to contact Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County anonymously at 800-458-8477 and online at
