Roseville police continue their search for two suspects who held up a Pawn America on Rice Street at gunpoint and shot an employee Monday.

Pawn America is offering a cash reward for any information that may help police in the apprehension of the suspects.

Both suspects are described as black males in their early to mid-30s. The first suspect is approximately 6 feet tall with a thick build, scruffy facial hair and a light beard. The man, who was wearing a Chicago "Blackhawks" hat, a long white t-shirt, dark colored shorts and red tennis shoes, was armed with a black semi-automatic pistol.

The second suspect is approximately 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a thin build, short hair and light facial hair. The man was wearing a blue baseball cap with white lettering, a maroon t-shirt with white lettering, and long dark colored shorts.

The suspects drove off in a dark colored four-door, unlicensed 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt.

Police say when the two suspects entered the store, one immediately started firing his pistol with one of the rounds hitting a 27-year-old employee in the leg. The second suspect smashed a glass display and removed an undisclosed amount of fine jewelry and watches, police said.

The employee shot in the leg suffered non-life threatening injuries and was being treated at a local hospital. No one else was shot.

Anyone with information should contact Minnesota Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
