Molina told the thief that he had no money because he used it to buy food, and then they asked Herrera if he would let his family go.
Herrera, according to WOAI-TV, told Molina that he and his family could leave. Molina's wife and two children were gone, but two of Molina's other children came out of the bathroom when Herrera pointed a gun at them.
