Deputies with the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office are investigating an armed robbery with shots fired at a Waffle House which occurred early Saturday morning.

Deputies said a man entered the restaurant at 8121 Warren H. Abernathy around 3 a.m. Deputies said the man pointed a gun at a waitress and demanded cash.

Deputies said the victims reported that as a staff member handed over money from the cash register, a shirt the suspect was using to cover his face fell to the ground. Witnesses told deputies when the suspect bent down to pick up the shirt, the gun he was holding went off.

Deputies said after the shot was fired, the suspect ran out of the restaurant with cash and disappeared on foot.

No one was hurt, deputies said.

Deputies said they were working to identify and locate the suspect.
