A man fired several shots into the ceiling of a San Diego, California, Walmart store, in the College Grove area, during a robbery, before fleeing with stolen cash. Luckily, no one was injured.
From an article:
According to witness reports, the gunman approached a cashier at the store at 3412 College Ave. The man described as a heavy set African American male with dreadlocks demanded money from one of the cashiers. After demanding the cash the suspect fired a shot, then moments later fired another shot.Is this the same College Grove Walmart store where another, similarly-described robber fired shots during another robbery, in November 2013?
Several dozen shoppers were hiding in the building then fled through multiple exits.
The suspect left the scene in what authorities describe as a silver Mustang with possibly a white door.The San Diego police robbery team will investigate using eye witness accounts and several cameras that surround the grounds.
Police say the gunman fled with an unknown amount of cash, speeding away at 100 mile per hour onto nearby state Route 94.
According to this article and news video, it is the same robber. Witnesses described the chaos as shoppers attempted to flee the building:
Police believe the robber who fired a gun inside the Oak Park Walmart this week is the same man who robbed the store six months ago.
On Tuesday night, shoppers at the Walmart on College Avenue, just north of State Route 94, rushed to the exits after a man fired three shots inside the store.
Jonathan Brown was shopping for shoes when he said he heard two gunshots. Then he saw a large crowd heading to the back of the store.
“People were falling over and stuff, really trying to get out really fast so I was like, this must be serious,” Brown said.
