Shots Fired During Burger King Robbery

A gunman who robbed an East County fast food restaurant fired one shot but no one was hurt.

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department is looking for a man who attempted to rob a Burger King, threatening employees with a gun, east of El Cajon off of Old Highway 80.

Deputies say the man ordered food and when the cashier told him the amount owed, he pulled out the gun and demanded money. The employees ran to the back and the suspect shot his gun at least once before running off, according to deputies.

There were no customers inside the restaurant at the time of the shooting and none of the employees were hurt.

The suspect was seen taking off westbound on Old Hwy 80 in a dark-colored pick-up truck. He's described as white or Hispanic, 5'8", and about 200 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call the San Diego Sheriff's Department.
