An employee at an Augusta fast food restaurant was hospitalized Sunday after he was shot in the leg during an armed robbery, police say.

About 8:20 p.m., two unknown black men entered the KFC restaurant near the intersection of Windsor Spring and Peach Orchard roads brandishing handguns and demanding money, according to a statement from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Police say one of the suspects shot one of the cashiers in the leg before fleeing the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center.

Man, the guy was just working..trying to make some money THE RIGHT WAY! I sure hope they find the sorry, stinking punks who shot this guy and took the money they didn't earn!

Stand you ground

And there are those that want to do away with it because it's "shoot first and ask questions later." That's what thug punks do. It's open season on law-abiding citizens, it needs to be open season on punk thugs. I don't care what the law is, I WILL defend myself and I WILL defend others if I am ever put in that situation. I'm not looking for a confrontation, but if one finds me, I WILL be prepared.

I agree 100%

"Every fast food restaurant and convenience store needs a full time sniper with a clear shot at the counter"

It is the only language these beasts understand.

Stand your ground everywhere

Stand your ground everywhere and concealed carry issued to law abiders is the real answer.

KFC robbed

Given the prices they charge for a wing ($2.15),
the robbers must of hit the jack pot .

I noticed the article made no mention of the robbers taking some
original recipe chicken. I just they couldn't wait around that long./

BTW:
Hope the wounded employee heals.
But why did they shoot him?

Was he trying to stop them?

Hey countyman does your list of coming attractions for South

Augusta which consists of only franchise food chains mean that there will be more opportunity for armed robberies?

How about get something going that will generate a LOT of tax revenue. But on second thought if we send more money to the Marble Palace those guys will just figure out more ways to waste it rather than balance the budget and save some.

It's just horrible!

It's just horrible! Horrible! Ack! What's wrong with people! We all just need to come together!

Umm. Is there anything else that can be said about this?

Meanwhile, the nation, it's government, etc. are falling apart at the seams. But we don't need to comment about the stories that illustrate this, now do we?
