Mount Pleasant police say two men wearing masks robbed Jose’s Blue Sombrero at gunpoint and fired shots inside the building Saturday night.
Officers were called at 11:50 p.m. to the restaurant, 6430 Washington Avenue, for a report of shots fired. When they arrived, witnesses said two men dressed in dark clothing and wearing white masks over their faces entered through the front door and at least one suspect displayed a handgun.
They demanded employees open the safe then fired two shots before escaping on foot north through the parking lot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
No one was injured during the robbery or when the shots were fired.
