Gunman storm Payless Car rental agency.
Orlando police hope security video will lead them to a group of brazen armed robbers.
The shift manager at the Payless Car rental agency told deputies that he was counting tags behind a counter when a man brandishing a handgun approached and told him to get on the ground.
Three gunmen dressed in all black clothing entered the business and demanded that employees lay on the floor.
The men threatened them with guns and dragged the victims from wherever they were working to a front lobby.
The men stole wallets from employees and money from the cash register.
Investigators spoke with three people who were outside the store at the time of the robbery.
One man told deputies that one of the gunmen pointed a firearm at him and his friends.
The group was also told to lie on the ground, but deputies said the group decided to run away from the scene instead.
The gunmen stole a blue Ford Focus, Florida tag 993XSB, and fled.
Witnesses could only describe the gunmen as black men ranging in height from 5 feet 4 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall who wore black clothing and black masks.
