CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Gunman Shoots Out Restaurant Door

For the second time this month a gunman has robbed a Sonic Drive-In Restaurant in Greenville by first shooting out the front door.

It happened again late Thursday night at the Sonic on Greenville Boulevard around 11:40 p.m.

Police released dramatic surveillance video on Friday. In the video you can see the gunman fire multiple times at the front door as he is running across the parking lot. His rifle jams and then the gunman fired again before climbing through the shattered glass front door.

The video shows six frightened employees running as the gunman made his way to where the money was kept. He laid his rifle on the floor while grabbing money from the counter and a cash drawer from what appeared to be a safe. The robber then is seen running from the restaurant.

Police say the man was dressed in dark clothing and wearing a bandanna with dollar sign emblems.

Since the end of July, there have now been four robberies at this restaurant and another Sonic on South Memorial Drive.

If you have information on this robbery, you should call the Greenville Police Department at 252-329-4315 or Pitt Greenville Crime Stoppers 252-758-7777.
