Downtown Wall St. Robbery Ends in Gunshots at SUV
UPDATE: This was no small robbery (nor does it feel random). KCAL9 reports that the $200,000 was stolen -- $100,000 in cash and $100,000 in checks [via Daily News].
Yes, Los Angeles has its Wall Street too. Today, it made the news (12th and Wall St.) after occupants in an SUV were robbed by three young males from another car. Around 8:00 a.m. this morning, the robbers first bumped into the SUV and then pulled to the side of the car. One male got out of the vehicle and robbed the victims at gunpoint. Police told KNBC that "the gunman opened the driver's side door, reached in and grabbed a bag with 'an undisclosed amount of cash' in it."
The gunman got back into the car and it sped off. The victims tried to chase them, but the assailants fired shots back at them, causing the SUV to crash. The occupants were uninjured.
