Song of the Day : Duran Duran – Hungry Like the Wolf
Amidst this hiss of smoke rising from their lead arms, the red-neon of the ovens cast an extra-large glow on the scene of the crime. The Pizza Hut employees hand-tossed their guns to the ground and slowly spoke, “Sorry fellas, but this time we don’t offer carry-out.”
Alright, so maybe it wasn’t that noir-esque, but this news story is a slice right out of a 1940’s private eye flick.
“The robbery was reported about 11:15 p.m. at the Pizza Hut in the 5400 block of East Independence Boulevard, near Idlewild Road. Police say two employees were in the rear of the restaurant, cleaning up for the night, when three men walked in the front door. The employees told police at least two of the suspects were carrying handguns.
The suspects ordered the two employees into the cooler, and for some reason, at least one of the suspects began beating a Pizza Hut employee.
CMPD Sgt. Gerard Farley said the other employee pulled out his own handgun and began shooting.
When police and paramedics arrived, they found two suspects on the floor, shot to death. The other suspect had run off. One investigator said early Monday morning that it is possible the third suspect was wounded by the employee.”
