FAIRFIELD - Two employees at a Fairfield restaurant say a man tried to rob them early Sunday morning.

Police say the employees were walking in the parking lot of Rio Bravo on Commerce Drive around 12:30 a.m. when a man demanded money and said he had a gun.

One employee told police the suspect fired his gun but says he didn't think it was loud enough to be a real gun.

The employees say the suspect took off in a car on Kings Highway East.
