— Two people were injured, and a third person is in custody following a shooting at a Fayetteville McDonald's Monday afternoon, according to police.

According to police, three men went into the restaurant, located at 4115 Raeford Road, at about 4:15 p.m. to sell two cell phones to a man inside.

During the transaction, the three men robbed the buyer with a handgun. The buyer then started shooting at the three men while still inside of the restaurant, police said.

Two of the three suspects were shot, and a third was taken into custody. The two injured men were taken to a local hospital.

Authorities said an elderly woman was knocked to the ground during the incident as the suspects ran from the scene.

No one inside the restaurant was injured.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Fayetteville Police Department at 910-433-1856.

    Glad the man robbed had a concealed weapon. Hope he had a permit and hope they were facing him when he shot them. You can not shoot when the threat to your life no longer exists. I question pulling the gun and risk being killed for a few dollars, not worth the risk. If his life was in danger he had a right to defend himself but I wonder about the shooting the other if he had no weapon.

    so what does Obama (or Trump) have to do with any of this?? We know nothing of the robbers political beliefs or race. They are male, should all males be condemned? Let's don't make this anything other than what it is - 3 men robbed one for a few dollars.
