Is Tyler Rodgers just wildin' 'cause he's young? Police are searching for the 18-year-old after he allegedly robbed The Cigar and Smoke Shop in Manhattan Beach, CA, with a shotgun hidden in a long, cardboard box. After pointing the weapon at an employee and demanding money, Rodgers directed the worker to the back of the store, handcuffed him, and slit his throat with a knife. 

After robbing the register, Rodgers was gone. The victim was taken to the hospital, where surgery performed on his wounds. Rodgers, who's on probation for robbery, is still at large.
