WEST MEMPHIS, AR (KAIT) -

West Memphis Police have released surveillance video of a carjacking at Southland Gaming and Racing on the department's Facebook page.

According to police, a teenager jumped out of a truck at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday and stole a man's car and took his money at gunpoint.

The victim told officers that the suspects were in their late teens or early 20s. According to the victim, one suspect jumped out of a black Dodge Ram truck. The driver never got out of the vehicle.

Southland's general manager is shocked someone would be so bold in a place with a lot of lighting and plenty of cameras and security officers.

"We have tons of security that patrol our lot, but a lot of cases they know that so if they're going to try something, they'll try to make it quick," Manager Troy Keeping said.

The suspects were driving a black Dodge Ram truck.

The victim's car is a 2011 Silver Acura TL with TN Plate 060 VYY.
