CHICAGO (CBS) – Three employees at an Aurora fast-food restaurant were shot – two of them critically wounded – during a what appeared to be a robbery attempt Thursday evening, although the gunmen took off without taking any money.
Police had three individuals in custody.
Two suspects entered a KFC in the 1300 block of East New York Street around 8:30 p.m. Thursday and announced a robbery, Aurora police said. One man was wearing a mask. At least one was armed with a rifle. A third suspect was believed to be driving a getaway vehicle.
Aurora spokesman Dan Ferrelli said four employees, and no customers, were inside the store at the time, though only three employees were visible. The suspects ordered those three young men to the front of the store, and immediately demanded money.
A short time later, two of suspects started shooting, even though the employees were complying with their demands.
