Police are searching for two men who robbed a T-Mobile store and then fired a gun at an employee as they fled the Elmhurst location this weekend.

The two alleged perpetrators entered the T-Mobile store at 86-16 Queens Boulevard around 5:35 p.m. on Saturday and displayed a gun, demanding that everyone move to the back of the store, according to police.

The suspects then took about $600 worth of store property before fleeing the premises.

When one of the employees of the store chased after the suspects, one discharged his gun at the employee, though the shot missed and no one was injured.
