Attempted Robbery At Tyler Dunkin' Donuts Tuesday

This morning, Tyler Police are searching for the man responsible for trying to rob an East Texas donut shop.

Police say a black male ordered a donut at the drive-thru of the Dunkin' Donuts on Tyler's south-southwest loop on Monday morning, and when he pulled around, the clerk noticed a shotgun in the man's car.

The empolyee then ran to the back of the store and called police. The suspect fled after the clerk didn't come back to the drive-thru window.

The case is being investigated by the Tyler Police Department.
