CANTON, Ohio - Canton police are looking for two suspects that opened fired inside of the Saveway Mart at 1105 Tuscarawas St.

WATCH: Surveillance camera video of two armed robbery suspects

When the suspects entered the store they took a shot at a skill game, took the money and then fired about 6 shots at patrons inside of the store before fleeing the scene. No one was injured.

The robbery happened early in the morning of August 19 one day after two armed men went into the Classic Drive Thru on Market St W. and fired a warning shot nearly hitting one of two employees.

"They shot a gun about this far from my employees ear," said the owner of Classic who asked we only use her first name Amy. "Then they pointed the guns in their face."

Police are not saying whether the two robberies are related but Amy urged whoever's behind them to stop.

"Stop, you're going to hurt someone you came awfully close to shooting my employee who has a wife and children."

And that's what's concerning to some in Canton. "You want to live in a safe environment and there's people out there who have that I don't care type of personality," said Gil Roberts of Canton. "They just get in their head I'm going to go do this they don't care about the consequences they don't care about the people they hurt  you know it's not cool."

Please contact Canton police at 330-438-4425 if you have information related to this incident.
