Fayetteville cops seek injured robbery suspect

An armed gunman got more than he bargained for Friday night when he and another man attempted to rob the China Cafe restaurant in the 900 block of north Glynn St. Friday night, police said.

One of the men was shot in the head by an employee, and the uninjured assailant returned fire, shooting one of the employees, police said. Both assailants got away, likely to a nearby waiting vehicle, police said.

The injured employee was taken to Grady Hospital in Atlanta, and area hospitals have been alerted to watch out for the injured gunman, police said.

The assailants were described as young black males, police said. The incident happened around 10:50 p.m.

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward as perhaps someone may have noticed suspicious activity that could lead to the suspects, who wore masks to disguise themselves during the heist. As of 5 a.m. Saturday morning, police were still processing the scene.
