COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -
Forest Acres Police are looking for two men who held up the employees and patrons of Pizza Joint late Tuesday evening.
Police were called to the scene shortly after 11:45 p.m. Investigators say two black males, one of whom was armed with a handgun, entered the restaurant and robbed the store of money and the customers of their personal belongings.
Officials say the pair were chased by a witness while they fled the scene, and the armed suspect opened fire on that person. That person was not hit in the gunfire and stopped pursuing the men immediately.
"No one was ready for that," said Pizza Joint employee Ned Plunkett. "No one was ready for that. Soon as they saw the drawer out, they pulled the mask down, pulled a pistol up, and told us all just give us the money, just give us the money."
Investigators with the Richland County Sheriff's Department and the Columbia Police Department were also at the scene. The K9 unit attempted to track the suspects, but was unsuccessful.
General Manager Jason Price wasn't working.
"First Tuesday in years I hadn't been here," Price said.
He got a call, he didn't expect.
"Out of breath he's tell me, dude, we just got robbed," Price said. "I got shot at."
An employee chased the robbers out of the restaurant. He was shot at, but not hit.
"They came in quick and left quick," Plunkett said. "I think it was all over in about three minutes. It was a pretty wild night."
Police say the suspects are described as two black males, 20-30 years of age, standing approximately 5'10'. One of the suspects was wearing a dark "puffy" jacket and a gray mask while the other was wearing a blue/green camouflage jacket.
If you have any information about this case, you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
