Attempted DTLA Jewelry Heist Ends In Shootout
In a scene straight out of a cops and robbers movie, three men attempted to rob a jewelry store today at Broadway and Sixth Street in Downtown L.A., but an off-duty, reserve deputy sheriff who was inside the store shot and hit one of the suspects.
The two other men shot back at the reserve deputy and fled the scene in separate vehicles, according to City News Service.
"One fled in a black Cadillac and the other one in a gray sedan," LAPD officer Wendy Reyes said in the report.
Police shut down the area to search for the two men who fled.
The suspect who was shot was taken to a nearby hospital where he is said to be in stable condition, according to the Los Angeles Times.
