Edwardsville Police are on the lookout for an armed man who tried to hold up a fast-food restaurant this morning.  A tall and thin white male, wearing dark clothing, gloves and a face mask entered the McDonalds Restaurant on Troy Road at about 3:45am by climbing through the drive-thru window.  One employee was shot in the leg during the incident.

The employees injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.  Edwardsville Police Lieutenant Charles Kohlberg tells The Big Z the suspect did not get any money and fled out the back door of the restaurant.
