*Uploaders Note: This happened about a mile and a half from where i live.I'm also a manager at Papa Johns and understand why the person defended himself and his employees. The man defending himself will probably be fired though because of company policies that state you cannot have firearms in or near the store. But thieves can. :P*
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- An attempted armed robbery at a Pizza Hut in east Charlotte turned fatal for two people involved Monday night.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said at about 11:15 p.m., two employees were in the back of the business cleaning up for the night, when three men entered through the front door.
Police said the men attempted to rob the business by forcing the employees into the cooler, when one of the employees shot one of the men with his personal gun. The employee shot a second men, while the third fled the scene.
When emergency responders arrived, they pronounced both men dead.
Investigators continued to interview both employees Tuesday morning, while crime scene teams responded to collect physical evidence.
Two handguns were recovered from the armed men. A K-9 unit was used Tuesday in the search for the third man, who was still at-large Tuesday.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a homicide unit detective
