An employee was hospitalized Wednesday morning after he was shot during a robbery at a Buena Park doughnut shop.
Police were called to Modoo Donuts in the 5400 block of Beach Boulevard after receiving a possible assault call about 1 a.m., Buena Park Police Department Sgt. Bret Carter said.
Arriving officers found a man with a gunshot wound inside the business, Carter said.
The victim, who has not been identified, is an employee of the shop, according to a coworker.
Surveillance video of the robbery showed one of two people who entered the doughnut shop leaping over the counter and running into the kitchen area where two employees were working.
One of the employees ends up in a fight with the armed robber and manages to shove the intruder into a table before the robber pushes his gun into the employee and apparently fires.
The robber is then seen cleaning out a cash register before fleeing the shop with the other robber, who was standing by the front door.
The victim was taken to a local hospital in stable condition following the shooting.
