ALHAMBRA, CALIFORNIA -- One of four robbers trying to hold up a gun shop was killed by an employee with a semiautomatic rifle, authorities said.
The attempted holdup and shooting at Euro Arms Gun Store on South Garfield Avenue occurred about 11:15 a.m. Friday. An employee in an office inside the store heard a commotion when the gunmen burst in, Sheriff's Deputy Roberta Granek said. When the worker emerged, one of the robbers confronted him and the employee fired three times, Granek said.
The other three suspects fled. One got away, but deputies arrested David Pruitt, 21, and Melvin Jones, 20, shortly after the shooting, Granek said. They were booked on suspicion of attempted robbery and murder and denied bail, she said.
