Man dressed in KC Zoo shirt robs concession stand

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Police say a man who robbed a concession stand at the Kansas City Zoo wore an employee shirt and served a customer a soft drink before pulling a gun on two zoo workers.

The Kansas City Star ( ) reports the holdup at 4:50 p.m. Sunday happened just before the zoo closed. Two employees at the Treetops Snacks concession stand say a man wearing a blue zoo shirt knocked on the staff door and said he needed to check the stand’s Dr. Pepper supply.

Police say a customer approached and asked for a soft drink, and the man pulled on a pair of food preparation gloves and served it.

The workers say after the customer left the man pulled out a semi-automatic pistol and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
