Horrifying footage shows the moment a shopkeeper was held at gunpoint by a masked thug.

The armed robber is on the run after taking off with $2000 from the Foodworks supermarket in Claymore, near Campbelltown in western Sydney, on Tuesday. 

The gunman, in a balaclava and dressed in all black first picked up a can of Red Bull and an ice cream before pulling out the firearm.

He casually moved towards the counter and threatened the worker.

The terrified woman handed over $2000 to the thug after he demanded she empty the tills.  

‘He showed me the gun and said to put the money in the bag,’ the shop attendant told 9News.

‘I was scared, I just wanted him out of the store as soon as possible and away from me.’
