Christian Vinas, 21, working behind the counter, also dove to the ground when the shooting began.
“That has to be God,” Vinas said. “Out of all the places you could get hit in the body, you get hit right there. It was truly amazing.”
Vinas, who moved to Philadelphia from Florida about a month ago, said it was the second shooting in the past week in the neighborhood.
Three bullet holes — two in the doors and one in a window by the snack cakes — remained unrepaired Thursday morning.
