(Scroll down for video) A teenage gas attendant was horrified when three men robbed him at gunpoint at a gas station in Pennsylvania.

The 18 year old was working the night shift at the Southwest Philadelphia Hess Gas station in order to earn money to pay for college.

However, things did not go very well. One night, three men entered the Hess gas station convenience store to rob him.

The first man who entered the store, wore a Hess Gas station shirt and pretended to a delivery man. The second man entered the store with a gun and the third man followed.

The teenager was shot in the head. Luckily, he was not seriously hurt. The men then ordered him into the bathroom and told him to be quiet.

For the next two hours, the 18 year old sat in the bathroom in fear for his life, while the robbers were in the store selling gas to unsuspecting customers.

When the thieves finally left with the money the teenager was taken to the hospital where he was treated for the gunshot wound.

Police now believe the same three suspects are responsible for at least two thefts at different Hess stations in just five days.

The suspects fled the scene and are still at large. Authorities said that the suspects served customers between 1:00 a.m. and 4:30 a.m., and are asking anyone who was at the gas station, to come forward.
