COLUMBIA — Police are searching for two men they say robbed a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant on Saturday night.

Two males armed with handguns entered the restaurant at about 10:45 p.m. and demanded the employees hand over the money belonging to the business, located at 3212 Clark Lane, according to a Columbia Police Department news release. The employees were then forced into the store office at gunpoint and the victims’ cell phones were taken, the release said.

The victims are Deangelo Joe, 38; Pierre Leech, 34; and Shawn Roundtree, 34, all of Columbia. There were no injuries reported from the incident.

The  suspects left on foot.

Once again the Missourian fails to give the full description of the armed robbers yet they give the names of the victims putting those victims in more jeopardy.

Somebody really needs to go back to the jschool.

The usual "somebody did something but we are afraid to say anything resembling facts for fear" story ....

How wide is the yellow stripe of "political correctness" at the Missourian?
