MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police have released surveillance images of the suspects and their vehicle in a Roseville pawn shop shooting and robbery that took place Monday night.
According to police, officers responded to a call of a shooting at the Pawn America on the 1700 block of Rice Street at about 5:44 p.m.
Upon their arrival, police were told multiple gun rounds had been fired and a store employee had been shot in the leg.
While one robber threatened workers and customers with the gun, the other one smashed a display case and stole jewelry.
The two men drove off, going west bound on Larpenteur Avenue, in a four-door, Black Chevy Cobalt. The car had no front license plate, and police think it’s from out-of-state.
The employee who was shot in the leg sustained non-life threatening injuries and is being treated a local hospital.
The suspect who shot the employee is described as a black man in his early- to mid-30s, 6-feet-tall with a thick build. His eyes appeared bloodshot and yellowed. He had scruffy facial hair, wore a red Chicago Blackhawks baseball cap, a long white T-shirt that went past his waist, dark colored long shorts and red tennis shoes. He had a black semi-automatic pistol.
The suspect who broke the jewelry case is described as a black man in his early- to mid-30s, 5-foot-8 with a thin build and short hair. He had a light beard with facial hair along his jawline. He wore a blue baseball cap with white lettering, a maroon T-shirt with white lettering and long blue or black shorts that went past his knees.
