Greenville police say no one was hurt when a fast food restaurant was robbed at gunpoint late Thursday night.
It happened at the Burger King on North Memorial Drive and Highway 33 around 11: 45 p.m.
Sergeant Joe Friday says one of the gunmen had a sawed-off shotgun and the other a handgun. Friday believes the two men hid in the restaurant and waited for it to close before coming out and pointing weapons at the employees.
The gunmen ushered the three to four employees into a storage closet and then went to the manager's office where they stole several cash drawers. Friday says they then ran out the back door.
Police are checking to see if the Burger King hold-up is related to other recent robberies in the city. Sgt. Friday says what really concerns them is the heightened level of violence in these robberies.
