Four suspects have been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with a botched jewelry store robbery in San Juan Capistrano.

In June, authorities said three men wearing masks and gloves tried to hold up Monaco Jewelers.

An employee opened fire and hit two of the suspects, killing them. A third suspect and a getaway driver escaped.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department said a continuing investigation led to the arrest of four additional suspects in the case.

Details of those arrests are expected to be released later.
