The men demanded cash from the register at gunpoint, firing a shot close to one of the employee’s feet.
Police are looking for two unidentified black males who robbed a Holmesburg pizza shop and fired a gun inside the store on April 29.
At approximately 12:01 a.m., the two men entered the store through the rear entrance on the 4300 block of Megargee Street. One of the suspects pointed a semi-automatic handgun at the employees, demanding money from the register.
Surveillance video released by police shows the employees getting to the ground and taking cover. When an employee tried to hide, one of the suspects followed him and shot at the floor close to his feet.
One employee opened the register and helped a suspect fill a big with an undisclosed amount of money. The suspects then fled the shop and were last seen south on Cottage Street from Megargee Street.
Police describe the first suspect as between 25 and 30 years old, standing 5 feet 10 with a thin build. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with “Pennsylvania” written on the front, and black pants, shoes and gloves.
Police describe the second suspect as standing 5 feet 8 with a slight beard and mustache. He was wearing a black hat with “CK” written on it, and all black sweatshirt, pants and shoes.
