— The manager of a Durham McDonald's was shot during an attempted robbery Tuesday night, police said.

Just before 10 p.m., two masked men approached the manager of the store while he was doing some paperwork. Police said the manager struggled, and was shot. The fast-food restaurant is in a WalMart store at the New Hope Commons Shopping Center on the Durham-Orange county line.

The manager was taken to the hospital. His name and condition were not released.

Police arrested two men they believe held up the manager. The pair was found in woods near where a getaway car was parked.
