Police have released the 911 tape from a Kenosha, Wis., robbery where a clerk was fatally shot. Two masked men held up Shirl's Drive-In around 9:30 p.m. Sunday. They entered through a backdoor, according to police, and shot a clerk and the restaurant manager.

Manager: Shirl's Drive-In. There's an armed robbery going on right now. I've been shot in the back and I'm bleeding.

Dispatcher: You've been shot in the back?

Manager: Yeah. Bye.

Dispatcher: No, stay on the line with me. Is the person still there?

Manager: Yes.

The clerk, Robert Wilde, 18, died of his injuries. The manager, 43, was treated and released from a local hospital. Three other people were injured, but their conditions have not been released.

Police said the suspects got away with only $14.

Nick Bohr of WISN-TV, an ABC affiliate in Milwaukee, reports police were on the scene most of the night. Officials said the suspects remain at large.

"These are thuggish suspects entering an establishment armed with weapons. Who knows what they are thinking," said Sgt. Hugh Rafferty, Kenosha Police Department.

Police said one suspect had a knife and the other had a gun.

There were no customers at the store at the time.

Wilde attended high school at Kenosha.
