One suspect, who was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with an orange logo on the left side, pointed a revolver at the employee and told him to empty the register. He also demanded the money box.

He was carrying a gray Protege duffel bag with orange trim. 

That same suspect went up to a customer inside the store and took her wallet. He then followed the employee into the back room to get the money box. While in the back, he shot a 17-year-old girl, who also worked at the restaurant. 

He stuffed the money box in the bag before leaving. 

The second suspect, described as a black male with long dreads, was wearing a black hoodie and was armed with an AR-15. 

The first suspect was described as a light skin black male or Hispanic male between the ages of 17 and 20. He was 5-foot 6-inches to 5-foot 8-inches tall, wearing black gloves and light Nike tennis shoes. 

His right arm seemed to be incapacitated due to unknown reasons. In the surveillance video, he was unable to use his right arm to open the door or grab the money box.

The second suspect was also between the ages of 17 and 20. He was about 6 feet tall, wearing a black hoodie, a white shirt tied around his face and dark grey tennis shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Robert Beveridge at rbeveridge@city.cleveland.oh.us or 216-623-2712.
