LAWRENCE — Two employees were shot Saturday evening during a robbery attempt at a Korean restaurant in Lawrence.

Lawrence Police Department public information officer Gary Woodruff said three male suspects entered the Bando Restaurant in the 8000 block of Pendleton Pike just after 7:15 p.m. through a back door.

During the robbery attempt, two employees were shot after they confronted the suspects in the back room. Woodruff said the employees were transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The robbery suspects fled the restaurant and ran south after the shooting, Woodruff said. They were never in the same area of the restaurant as customers.

Woodruff said nothing was taken during the robbery attempt.
