The FBI and police are searching for two thieves who held up a packed Virginia, Denny’s, and shot two people, killing one of them, and a DoorDash delivery person to pick up your order.

Prince William County police have released surveillance video that shows two robbers entering the Denny’s in Manassas, overnight on Thursday. They were armed with a pistol and a baton.

“This is a heinous crime,” Police chief Barry Barnard said, according to WJLA-TV. “People are eating in a Denny’s at two o’clock in the morning and enjoy their time, enjoy their friends, and people would come up to the commission of a robbery. And, without any provocation, and everyone worked together, there were about 20 people in the restaurant, we were involved in no resistance — they have to shoot the two men. The one is to be killed.”

The thieves ordered the victims to surrender their wallets and cell phones, police said. They are left without the one and only Denny’s receipts.
