JOELTON, TN (WSMV) -

Police are looking for two armed suspects who shot at the drive-thru window at a McDonald's in Joelton.

The gunmen shot through the window when employees wouldn't let them inside the business on Eatons Creek Road.

Employees told police the two men pulled up to the McDonald's in a green SUV just before midnight Tuesday.

Four of the six employees working at the time were outside taking out the trash and smoking when the armed men jumped out of the SUV with rifles.

Three of the employees ran away. One woman was left behind. She said she froze because the suspects were pointing guns at her. They demanded that she let them inside, but she told them she was locked out.

That's when the suspects allegedly walked up to the drive-thru window, demanded for the employee there to let them in and then shot at the window. The suspects then ran back to the SUV and took off empty-handed.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident.

Police say the man who fired the shot is white with a skinny build, and he wore a blue bandanna over his face. The second suspect is a black man with a medium build; he covered his face with a white bandanna. The restaurant has released surveillance photos of the two men.

Anyone with information or who recognizes the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
