BUENA PARK, Calif. (KABC) -- An employee at a Buena Park doughnut shop was shot by an armed robber early Wednesday morning. Shocking surveillance footage shows the moment the victim was struck.
A co-worker who witnessed the robbery said the victim was shot in the back of the head. Buena Park police said the victim was transported to an area hospital in stable condition.
The shooting happened around 1 a.m. inside Modoo Donuts, which is located at 5411 Beach Blvd.
The victim's co-worker said the suspect demanded money from the register before firing his weapon.
The shooter was described as an African American man in a dark hooded sweatshirt with a bandanna covering his face.
A second suspect, described as either an African American or Hispanic man in a light-colored hooded sweatshirt with a bandanna across his face, was observed later by police on surveillance video waiting in the lobby area of the doughnut shop while the robbery was underway.
Both suspects fled on foot. It was not immediately known how much money the suspects made off with.
If anyone has any information about the crime, they are asked to contact the Buena Park Police Department at 714-562-3901.
