An employee of a Buena Park doughnut shop was shot and wounded Wednesday by one of two men who robbed the 24-hour business, authorities said.

The crime occurred about 1 a.m. at Moodoo Donuts in the 5400 block of Beach Boulevard, said Buena Park police Sgt. Mike Lovchik, adding that the wounded man was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
