Miami Police are hoping surveillance video from a Burger King restaurant leads them to a robbery suspect.

The video shows employees scrambling for cover as soon as the gunman walks into the Burger King at 3051 Coral Way near Southwest 31st Avenue at about 9:30 p.m. Monday night.

One employee kneels down and appears to respond to something the robber said.

The video shows the man walk in, jump the counter and head right to the back of the restaurant.

Several camera angles show the gunman walking through the restaurant, with gun in hand, appearing to keep his head down, avoiding the cameras.

Police responded within minutes, and set up a perimeter thinking the suspect was still inside – not knowing he slipped out a back door.

Police have not said how much money the robber took.

Customer Chris Herrera, who used to work at a fast food restaurant, said he understands why they are sometimes targeted.

"It is so cheap and just anybody walks through there," he said.
