Police are searching for two suspects who they say posed as customers and then shot an employee during a robbery inside a Metro PCS store in Warminster, Pennsylvania.
The suspects entered the store on 269 County Line Road Thursday afternoon and confronted the lone employee inside. They then opened fire, shooting the employee in the stomach.
"They came in as regular customers," Warminster Township Police Chief Jim Donnelly said. "And that's what we're trying to piece together. Our only witness is currently in surgery."
