Shawnee Police are investigating after a Taco Bell employee was robbed in the parking lot Thursday morning.

Police say the robbery occurred at approximately 10:14 a.m. at the Taco Bell in the 10 Quivira Plaza shopping center. The Taco Bell is located at 12014 Shawnee Mission Parkway, just west of Quivira Road.

Operation 100 News was on scene shortly after the robbery and confirmed with a Shawnee Police Sergeant that the robbery occurred outside of the business and no one had been injured.

Police set up a perimeter in the area and called in an off-duty K-9 officer to conduct a search of the area. The search did not locate the suspect.
