Police say men robbed a gas station, then stayed at the store for several hours afterward and pumped gas for customers.

The men entered a Hess gas station in southwest Philadelphia demanding money, which reportedly caught the 18-year-old clerk off-guard because one of the men was wearing a shirt with a Hess logo on it, leading him to believe they were making a delivery. At one point, one of the men fired a shot from a gun, grazing the clerk's head, reports KYW-TV.

After he was robbed, the clerk was told to stay quiet in the bathroom for several hours, while the suspects waited on customers and pumped gas for them, offering a discount to those who paid with cash.

He eventually exited the bathroom and called the police.

Police say the robbers are responsible for similar Hess station robberies and are still at large.
