Leawood McDonald's employee shot during botched robbery

LEAWOOD, KS (KCTV) -

Police are looking for two men after a McDonald's employee was shot during a botched robbery attempt.

The shooting happened about 11:15 p.m. Saturday at West 119th Street and Roe Avenue, which is in a busy area. The two men apparently hid out in the bathroom. Once the business closed, the men came out and confronted a manager.

Authorities say during the robbery attempt, the men got into a fight with the manager who pushed them out the door. One of the men, who was armed, fired his weapon several times, hitting the manager.

That employee is expected to survive.

"It is a very rare occurrence in our city, and fortunately no one was hurt badly.  We just recommend always that people be safe and look around at their surroundings," Sgt. Brad Robbins said.

Police said this was the second attempted robbery in the last week in Leawood.

The robbers were captured on video but police are choosing not to release the surveillance photos at this time.

One suspect was wearing dreadlocks and a dark gray sweatshirt. The second man was wearing a red sweatshirt. They fled the area in a white or silver SUV.

If you have any information, call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
