Shots fired during Golden Corral robbery near Snellville

As reported by Gwinnett Daily Post

Police are looking for two men accused of robbing a Snellville-area Golden Corral manager at gunpoint, firing multiple shots during the course of the crime.

Cpl. Michele Pihera, spokeswoman for the Gwinnett County Police Department, said officers responded to the restaurant, located at 3888 Stone Mountain Highway on Sunday. The manager, a 57-year-old man, said he was preparing to lock up the building for the night when two armed men approached.

“One suspect held the gun to the back of the manager’s head while he unlocked the front door,” Pihera said in a news release Wednesday. “Both suspects forced the manager to walk into the restaurant office.”

They took him to the safe and demanded he give them the money.

“When the manager was having difficulty opening the safe, the suspect fired one shot in close proximity to the victim’s head,” Pihera said. “A few moments later, and after the manager still couldn’t open the safe, the suspect fired another shot. This round struck a computer monitor.”

The men then left, running out the front door. But not before the restaurant’s surveillance system captured multiple angles of their crime.

Pihera released the photos, asking anyone who knows the men to contact detectives at 770-513-5300. To remain anonymous, tipsters should contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or visit www.crimestoppersatlanta.org. Crime Stoppers offers a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the case.

Both suspects are described as black men between the ages of 18 and 25. They are believed to stand about 5-foot-8 and weigh roughly 180 pounds. Both wore grey sweat pants, grey gloves and a bandana during the robbery.
