Oak Ridge and Conroe Police officers arrived on the scene and believed that employees were still inside the store with the suspects. Sheriff Office deputies learned during interviews with store employees that at least two armed suspects had come into the restaurant through the drive-thru window and both suspects had handgun. One employee was able to exit the building safely out the drive-thru window while the suspects were distracted. Initial attempts to contact anyone inside the business were unsuccessful and SWAT and Crisis Negotiators were called to the scene.
