4-year old girl threatened at gunpoint by store robber in Dallas

4-year old girl threatened by gunman
Two men robbed a store in Dallas, Texas.  During the robbery, a man and his 4-year old girl entered the store.  They were threatened by one of the robbers, George Tucker, who pointed his weapon at the girl.

From the article and video, including security video:
 One suspect went to the back of the store to steal merchandise while his partner remained in the customer service area. While this was going on, a customer unknowingly entered the store with his four-year-old daughter.
Police said the suspect ordered the customer to sit in a chair and pointed the gun at him. The suspect demanded the man’s wallet, and as he reached for it, the suspect focused his weapon on the girl.
In a release, Dallas Police said Tucker was “identified by multiple people who saw the video.” After finding out people were reporting him, Deputy Chief Sherryl Scott said Tucker surrendered.
Scott said he has admitted to being the person in the video and said he was unaware he was pointing the gun at the girl.
“According to the suspect, he said he was just waving the gun and didn’t realize he pointed it at the child,” she told CBS 11′s Steve Pickett.
The gunman is a suspect in at least four robberies in the area in the last week.
