TULSA - Police are searching for four suspects who robbed a midtown Tulsa KFC late Tuesday night.
Police say it happened around 10:30 p.m. at the restaurant on South Peoria.
Employees were closing the store and as one of them opened a back door two men forced their way inside.
Police say one suspect had a gun and the other was armed with a knife.
A manager was forced to open the safe as three employees were told to stay on the floor.
At some point, police say the gun went off, hitting an employee in the abdomen. The victim is listed in fair condition at a Tulsa hospital. Store Operational Manager Billy Hodge tells 2News all three employees are doing okay. The hospitalized employee is expected to be released from the hospital soon.
"He said get inside, and that's when he shot him," said Hodge. "The other two guys came inside, I think there were a total of 3 guys is what they said."
"The other guys came inside and put a gun in the back of the managers head and a knife to the girl and made them open the safe and get the money and go," Hodge adds.
The suspects left with cash and the employees' cellphones.
Police say two other men were involved -- one stayed outside and the other in the getaway truck, described as dark blue.
A witness told police they saw three black males leave in a blue four-door Chevrolet truck, which hit a parked car as it left the store.
Police say the suspects who entered the stores are black males in their early 20s, both between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 10, about 150 pounds. One wore a black hoodie and the other a gray hoodie. Both had cloths covering their faces.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (918) 596-COPS.
