A gunman leaped over a counter and scuffled with an employee before opening fire on the man during an armed robbery caught on security cameras Wednesday at a Buena Park doughnut shop.
The heist occurred at about 1 a.m. at Modoo Donuts in the 5400 block of Beach Boulevard. The victim, a baker hired about three months ago, was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the neck, but details about his condition were not immediately available.
Security cameras showed the attacker leaping over a counter and chasing an employee, who tried to warn a co-worker. The employee appeared to confront the gunman before at least one shot was fired.
