Employees told Rochester Police a black, boxy SUV, similar to a Jeep Cherokee, was in the parking lot, and two people were inside of it.
One of the people got out of the vehicle, entered the store, and then went back to the vehicle.
The vehicle then went through the drive-thru, an order was placed, and when the vehicle pulled up to the window, the 17-year-old employee at the window said the two people inside, who appeared to be under 18, had masks over their faces.
The employee told police one of them pointed what appeared to be an AR-style gun at him, so he got down on the floor and quickly went to the back of the store.
RPD said the gun, which was later determined to be a paintball gun, was fired. Several paintballs were shot inside and outside of the restaurant before the vehicle took off.
Rochester Police don’t believe the two suspects were trying to rob the fast-food restaurant, but rather cause fear among the employees.
“This is a very dangerous thing these kids were doing,” said Captain Casey Moillanen. He added, “Had someone inside the restaurant had a conceal to carry, this could have ended much differently.”
A handful of employees and customers were inside the restaurant at the time of the incident.
No arrests have been made, at this time.
