APD: Man orders Church’s chicken combo, then pulls gun on manager

Atlanta police are looking for a man who allegedly robbed a Church’s Chicken at gunpoint last week.

The restaurant’s manager was working a register when the suspect came in with a phone to his ear and waited for another customer to leave, according to an incident report.

The man ordered a combo, but when the manager asked what pieces of chicken he’d like, he pointed a gun at her and allegedly said: “Don’t get shot, give me all the money in the register.”

He then ordered the manager to get the money from the drive-thru and threatened to shoot that employee if she moved, the report said.

Before leaving, the suspect allegedly told employees: “Now you can call the cops.” He took $966, according to the report.

The robbery took place around 6:15 p.m. on Dec. 15. at 1405 Moreland Ave. SE.
