Two men fire shots during attempted robbery inside 7-Eleven
Two men fired shots at a 22-year-old victim and attempted to rob him inside a 7-Eleven in the Bronx Monday morning.
The armed suspects entered the convenience store located at 1754 University Avenue in Morris Heights at approximately 7 a.m. They demanded money from the male victim and fired their weapons four times.
The suspects may have been chasing the victim, the New York Post reported. An employee of the store herded customers to a back room, saving them from the gunfire, sources told the Post.
No injuries were reported and the suspects fled without any money or property. The investigation is ongoing.
The suspects are described as being Hispanic and in their 20s. One was wearing grey sweatpants and a black jacket. The other has a beard and a ponytail and was wearing a black jacket and blue jeans.
