Two Chick-fil-A employees were shot during a robbery gone wrong at a location in Arkansas Tuesday night. According to THV-11, an employee was taking out the trash just before 11 p.m. when a man allegedly holding a gun forced his way inside the restaurant. The employee and the robber had an altercation inside the back door of the restaurant, and another employee got involved in the situation. The robber then decided to shoot the two employees and he took off.

KATV notes that the employees — who are identified as 23-year-old William Harville and 21-year-old Stacy Kidwell — were taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. The restaurant was shut yesterday and police are "vigorously investigating" the shooting and are still looking for a suspect.

This is the second Chick-fil-A that has been robbed in recent weeks: A burglar hit a location in Houston and "completely destroyed its interior." The criminal or criminals shattered glass and pulled tiles and from the wall. Luckily, the crime took place on a Sunday — the day the chain is always closed — so no one was hurt.
