Kennesaw McDonald's SWAT standoff ends peacefully

KENNESAW, Ga. -- No one was hurt when a gunman demanded money from customers at a Cobb County McDonald's overnight.

Police said the suspect entered the McDonald's on Cobb Parkway in Kennesaw at around 1 a.m. Wednesday. About five or six employees and two or three customers were inside the restaurant at the time.

Cobb County Police said the gunmen demanded money from the register, then lined up the victims and told them to give up their money and personal belongings, including cell phones. A few victims managed to escape the building. A SWAT team arrived to try to bring the situation under control.

When responding officers made their way inside the restaurant, they learned the suspect had escaped. He has not yet been caught or identified; witnesses described him as a young black man.
