Suspect Shoots At Door, Robs Greenville Sonic

Greenville Police are looking for a suspect that robbed a Sonic early Sunday morning and shot through a glass door shattering it.

It happened at the Sonic on 3751 South Memorial Drive. Police say the manager had just closed the business for the night when the suspect approached one of the doors and fired a shot through it. The glass door shattered and the suspect entered.

The suspect demanded money from the clerk and fled the business with an undisclosed amount of currency. There were three employees in the business at the time of the robbery.

The suspect was wearing all black clothing and a black ski mask and was armed with a .22 caliber rifle. Police say he was approximately 140 lbs. and 5'9.

    What do the NAACP has to do with this?Leave the NAACP out of this.....

    This story can't possibly be true. They must have made it up. Under NC Statutes, it is ILLEGAL to carry a firearm in any establishment that serves alcohol, so there is NO WAY that anyone could have carried a gun into a Sonic... Because we all know that criminals obey the law, and obey signs about this sort of thing... How's that "gun control" thing working out for you, Gov. Perdue?

    The NAACP has protested at WRAL and WTVD for their reporting the race of the perp...

    Yeah, they had to change their regular schedule to prepare for any looting that might have been going on had Earl come ashore in ENC.

    I was mentioning to a friend of mine; now that Earl has headed up north, how long would it take for things to get "back to normal" in Greenville. Didn't take all that long, did it?

    Isn't this the second time in just a few weeks? I bet the employees there are considering working elsewhere... Greenville is the new Rocky Mount.

    Again, the failure of the news to report if the suspect is white, black, asian or latino. It's hard to believe you can report what the suspect was wearing and height & weight with a .22 cal. gun but, don't know the skin color.
