According to the Chicago Tribune, the suspect, 19-year-old Terrion Pouncy, was "wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt" and he had a "dark scarf concealing his face".
He tried to stuff the pistol in his trousers pocket while running away, but it prematurely discharged twice - shooting him in the right thigh and penis, the paper reported.
Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Erin Antonetti said in court that one of the employees was handling a bucket full of grease when Pouncy walked into the restaurant and demanded money. At the same time, employees from the hot dog stand dialed 911 about the robbery.
Because of his injuries, Pouncy was unable to appear for a bond hearing on Thursday so the judge ordered him held without bail pending a hearing on Tuesday, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Officers later found Pouncy near a auto wash, where he called 911 to say he had been shot. He is scheduled to be in court on November 7.

He was taken to the hospital and charged with two counts of armed robbery with a firearm.
The 39-year-old employee later found his wallet - near the spot where the thief had accidentally shot himself, according to the report.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Pouncy then turned to make his getaway and while "shifting the gun in his waistband... he apparently pulled the trigger, firing a bullet that struck him in the penis".
Officers who found Pouncy said he was in a pair of "blood-stained boxers" that matched the boxers seen on surveillance video from the hotdog stand. That same employee also wrestled with Pouncy as he attempted to leave.
