Carter brandished the gun at an employee and demanded money, according to the arrest citation. That’s when two off-duty Elizabethtown Police Department officers who were inside the restaurant confronted Carter, according to the citation. Carter dropped the gun and fled the business, and the two officers gave chase on foot before apprehending him a few minutes later on nearby Beechwood Avenue, according to the arrest report. Carter was captured on surveillance video wearing “distinctive clothing,” and police later released the security footage, which showed the two officers getting up from a table inside the restaurant and drawing their weapons as they chased the suspect out of the restaurant.
