The post office at the Seven Corners shopping center was robbed by two men shortly after 11 a.m. this morning, according to a spokesperson with the Fairfax County Police Department.

One of the suspects jumped on the postal counter and demanded money from a 55-year-old female employee. The other suspect displayed a handgun and stood near an exit inside the building. They escaped on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, although they could have had a car parked nearby. A police helicopter and K9 units failed to apprehend them. The investigation is continuing with assistance from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

Two post office employees were transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital with non-life threatening medical conditions. No shots were fired during the robbery.
