The woman, now identified as Shelia McGee, allegedly went into the store and, according to Neida Bernabe Garcia, began screaming, “Where’s that Mexican B****?”

According to Garcia, that’s when McGee came behind the counter, armed with two medium sized pocket knives.

‘I’m still traumatized. Nothing like this has ever happened in my entire life.”
