Store owner fires at suspects' vehicle after armed robbery in Anaheim, police say

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- A convenience store owner in Anaheim opened fire on a getaway vehicle after an armed robbery Thursday evening, authorities said.

The incident was reported at about 10:13 p.m. at the Calimex Market at 316 Brookhurst Street, where two business owners were held at gunpoint as the robbers rummaged through the store, said a spokesperson for the Anaheim Police Department.

Surveillance video appears to show two robbers standing behind an employee as he opens a cash register.

When the suspects ran out of the market, one of the victims fired at their vehicle with a small-caliber handgun, police said.

While the vehicle may have been struck by gunfire, investigators did not believe the robbers were hit. None of the employees were injured.

The amount of money or property that was stolen, if any, was unknown.
