Police in Hapeville are searching for a gunman who climbed through the drive-thru window at McDonald’s about 3 a.m. Wednesday.
Before getting away, the man who tried to rob the restaurant on North Central Avenue held two employees at gunpoint, according to a police report.
One of those employees was pistol-whipped and shot in the back, police wrote in the report. The man’s name was not released, but he remains at Grady Memorial Hospital recovering from surgery, Channel 2 Action News reported.
The shift manager ran out of the McDonald’s to a nearby International House of Pancakes restaurant and asked a server to call 911.
