PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Police responded to a Taco Bell at the 7000 block of northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, after a silent robbery alarm was activated Tuesday.

When officers arrived in the area just before 9:15 a.m., they learned that there was no robbery, but a man inside the restaurant with a gun in his waistband. The armed man was with two other men, according to police.

An employee told police that the man lifted up his shirt, exposing the gun, while making his food order. He then paid for his food, but the employee still felt threatened afterward.

As the employees left the restaurant at the officers' request, the three men walked out of the Taco Bell and ran in different directions. All three suspects were taken into custody without incident, and two handguns were seized after officers searched the area where the men ran through.

One gun was found on the rooftop of a building, and the other in the yard of a neighborhood home.

Jordan Lee Louis, 18, faces multiple charges including unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, and menacing.

Leontrell Lenell Bennett, 20, was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a loaded firearm, and interfering with a peace officer.

John Jerome Weems, 20, was charged with two outstanding probation violations.
