Once the seated suspect was wheeled behind the pharmacy counter, he stood up and produced a black handgun, at which point the suspects ordered the employees to the ground, Whittier police say.

With the terrified employees on the floor, a third suspect allegedly filled a black bag with thousands of dollars' worth of various types of prescription medication.

The suspects are described as follows:

Suspect No. 1 is described as a black male of unknown height and weight wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a beard. Suspect No. 2 is a black male who stands about 5 foot, 8 inches, weighing 160 lbs. and wearing a sweater with a unique pattern. He has a "Roman numeral" type tattoo on his neck.
