Roseville police are looking for two men who they say shot a Roseville Pawn America employee and stole jewelry and watches from the store Monday evening.

Police say immediately after walking into the store, one of the suspects began shooting, hitting a 27-year-old employee in the leg, the Pioneer Press reports.

The second suspect smashed a glass display and took an undisclosed amount of jewelry and watches, police said, according to reports.

No arrests have been made, and police are now looking for the two suspects who are described as black men, medium to heavy set, and believed to be in their early to mid-20s, KSTP says.

The suspects fled the Rice Street shop in a dark colored, four-door Chevy Cobalt – police think the vehicle is from out-of-state, WCCO reports. They were last reported traveling west on Larpenteur Avenue towards Dale Street, KARE 11 says.

The employee who was shot suffered non-life threatening injuries and was being treated at a local hospital, reports say. No one else was injured.

Anyone with information should contact Minnesota Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
