A frightening night for a Subway restaurant worker and customers when a masked gunman walked in and started firing. It happened just before 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night in Jacksonville. The suspect demanded money and then pointed a handgun at the employee's face and pulled the trigger. But nothing happened. Lawmen say the gun apparently wasn't loaded. While the man scrambled with his weapon, the Subway employee escaped and the customers locked themselves in the bathroom just before the gunman began to open fire. The unknown suspect is still on the loose. No one was hurt in the incident.
