Robbers pull off heist in KC despite exploding gun

One robber aimed his silver revolver at the manager of the Church’s Chicken at 11500 Blue Ridge Blvd. about 8:30 p.m. Thursday and cocked the hammer. He then pointed the gun at the ceiling and fired, apparently to show he meant business. But the gun exploded in his hand. Pieces of it clanked on the floor.
