Security guard shot during attempted robbery

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

More than just Chinese takeout as a robbery at a restaurant sends a security guard to the hospital.

This happened late last night at the China Inn Buffet.  Memphis Police say the store manager was walking to her car with the security guard when two unknown male suspects wearing black clothes over their face.

Police say the suspects were armed with a handgun, shot the security guard and demanded money from the female manager.   She refused, so they shot into her car and took off with an undisclosed amount of cash.


The security guard was taken to The Med in critical condition but was later upgraded to non- critical.


The suspects were last seen running toward a nearby apartment complex.

No one is in custody.  This is an ongoing investigation
