Subway Workers Told Man They Didn't Sell $2 Sandwiches, So He Shot Them

A man walked into a Fort Lauderdale Subway store last night and asked the two employees if they sold $2 sandwiches.

The employees said they didn't, so the guy demanded cash and shot both of them.

The Broward Sheriff's Office says this happened around 10:30 p.m. yesterday in the 2800 block of West Sunrise Boulevard, and investigators don't yet know who or where the gunman is.

According to police, the man started demanding cash after he was told there were no $2 sandwiches.

The employees complied and opened the register, but the cops say the man shot them "for no apparent reason."

Police say the shooter then left the store without taking anything.

Both of the workers -- 17-year-old Fawaz Farid and 31-year-old Sameer Farooq -- were taken to the hospital after the shooting. Farid was treated and released, while Farooq remains hospitalized, according to the BSO.

If you know the guy in the picture above, the cops would like to know: BSO Robbery Det. Tony Hierrezuelo at 954-321-4270, Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477, or online at browardcrimestoppers.org.
