Cameras capture crook robbing deli, shooting 2 employees

ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

A patient crook waited in line at a restaurant in southwest Atlanta, but when it was his turn at the counter, he robbed the place.  

It happened at the American Deli on Cascade Avenue last Thursday, and the whole crime was caught on surveillance cameras. 

It appears the crook had his finger on the trigger through the whole crime, and once he got the cash from the register, he shot two employees before taking off.

"The female had been shot in the stomach, and the male appeared to have been grazed," said Atlanta police Officer John Chafee.

Police say the gunman is not only dangerous but is also still on the loose.

"This man had a weapon which was clearly loaded and fired it during the commission of this time," said Chafee. "It's someone that we want to get off the streets."

Employees at the deli say the gunshot victims are doing OK, but they're obviously shaken up.

If you can identify the gunman in this case, you're urged to call police.
