ORLANDO, Fla. – Deputies are looking for three men who they say broke into an Orlando Walmart early Friday morning, held the managers at gunpoint and stole an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

The men entered the store at 5559 Clarcona-Ocoee Road shortly after midnight and forced the managers to open a safe at gunpoint, a news release said. 

One shot was fired in the store during the incident, deputies said. No one was injured.

Deputies said the three men stole the money and fled the store in an awaiting maroon SUV.

All three men were wearing ski masks over their faces and were dressed in all black, deputies said, adding that one man had "True Religion" written on the right leg of his black sweatpants.
