The Woolaroc gift shop was apparently robbed at gunpoint as the Oklahoma tourist destination ended its Wonderland of Lights event, according to Woolaroc Chief Executive Officer Bob Fraser.

Sunday at about 9 p.m., a man entered the gift shop and walked up behind an employee. The man said he had a gun, shoving something into the employee's back. The alleged gunman told the female employee to get on the ground, threatening to kill her if she did not.

The robber left with an undisclosed amount of money.

Surveillance video has been turned over to the Osage County Sheriff's Office, according to Fraser.

The Woolaroc CEO said they are counting their blessings that no one was hurt.
