Spokane police released this and other surveillence photos of the armed robbery at McDonald's May 25. View more here.

A takeover-style robbery that targeted customers and employees at a McDonald’s in south Spokane may be connected to a similar gunpoint attack at a nearby home five days later.

Victims in both robberies described the masked men’s weapons as black, semi automatic handguns and a sawed-off, single barrel shotgun, according to information released Monday.
