ODESSA - Odessa Police are hunting for a man who tried to hold up a restaurant on Wednesday night.

We're told the robbery happened around 9:30 a.m. at the Bush's Chicken on Andrews Highway.

An employee said a man came inside, pointed a gun at him and demanded cash.

Other workers came to help when they heard the employee arguing with the gunman who cocked the gun to show them he meant business.

When the workers didn't back down, he fired at the door and took off but not before trying to demand money from another employee outside first.

No money was stolen and no one was hurt.
