CHICAGO -- A group of people wearing Halloween masks attempted to rob a Humboldt Park Business before setting it on fire Saturday night.

It happened at the Amigo Grocery Store in the 3300 block of West LeMoyne.

Police say the three men, one in a gorilla mask, another in a clown mask, and a third wearing a hoodie entered the store and demanded cash.

One of the men had a gun.

The group made off with about $800 in cash, and as they left, they threw something, possibly a Molotov cocktail into the store.

Several employees and a woman who lives in an upstairs apartment were still inside the building at the time.

They all managed to escape the fire.

Police are still looking for the suspects.
