Morris Heights — Two men shot at a 7-Eleven employee in The Bronx during an attempted robbery Monday morning, police said.
The men entered the store on University Avenue in Morris Heights about 7 a.m., demanded money from the 22-year-old worker and then allegedly fired four shots in his direction, the NYPD said.
The employee was not hit and the men fled without getting any money, police said.
Police could not immediately say whether the employee refused to hand over money or if something else may have led to the shooting.
Both suspects are in their 20s, police said.
One man was wearing gray sweatpants and a black jacket, while the other man had a beard and ponytail and was last seen wearing a black jacket and blue jeans, police said.
