Police in East Chicago, Ind., are looking for two suspects who shot two men inside a small grocery store. The victims were a store employee in his friend. One victim was shot in his cheek, the other in his neck. Both victims survived the shooting.

"We believe that it might just be a robbery of the store," Det. Maurice Phillips of the East Chicago Police said. "That's what we're seeing right now, but the owners of the store seem to think it might be something different, something personal."

The clerk had only worked at the store for a week. East Chicago police are studying surveillance video from the store, and encourage anyone with any information about the crime to contact them.
