Initial reports from police were that a person was shot during a robbery at the Panera Bread restaurant. The victim was found with a graze wound to the neck, inside of the Marsh grocery store a few doors down.

After investigating, officers confirmed the shooting did happen inside the Panera Bread. Police said they’re not sure though if the motive was a robbery or not. Officials believe a confrontation began in the kitchen of the restaurant and that the delivery driver may have startled the suspect, possibly leading to the shooting.

Police said the victim was in stable condition and was later released from St. Vincent Hospital.

Officers were looking for the suspect involved, who is described as a black male, 25-30 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 180-190 pounds with a muscular build. He was wearing a black hat and a bandana, police said.
