Surveillance shows suspected gunmen sought in shooting of MetroCenter restaurant employee


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police have released surveillance images showing the two gunmen suspected of shooting a MetroCenter restaurant employee Monday night during a robbery.

According to police, two masked males wearing backpacks entered Kebab Gyros on Rosa L. Parks Boulevard around 6:15 p.m. One of them jumped over the counter and forced an employee to open the cash register at gunpoint, while officers said the second male acted as a lookout.

When the employee opened the register, both males grabbed cash from the drawer, then fled, firing shots and striking a female employee in the foot, police explained. She was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with minor injuries, investigators revealed.

Anyone with information on the identities of the two masked males is urged to contact Nashville CrimeStoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
