GRANDVIEW, MO (KCTV) -

A store clerk stares down the barrel of a semi-automatic rifle - and now Grandview police want to nab the robber before he strikes again. 

During the overnight hours on September 11th, police investigated two armed robberies. The first at a fast food restaurant, while the second occurred at a convenience store. 

The suspect fired shots during one robbery but thankfully, no one was hurt.

During both crimes the perpetrator was armed with a long gun and demanded money from the businesses.

Investigators are still working to determine if the robberies are connected.

A spokesperson for Papa John's issued the following statement: 

"The safety of our employees and customers is a top priority; we are very thankful our team members were not injured and are safe.  We will continue to cooperate with local enforcement throughout the investigation."
