Restaurant Owner Wins Battle Against Armed Robbers

A restaurant owner in Montebello, Calif., was shot during an early morning robbery attempt on Saturday, but managed to fight back and fatally wound both of his assailants to put an end to the attack.

According to a police statement about the incident: “The preliminary investigation has determined both suspects were armed with handguns (and) attempted to rob the victim. During the robbery, one of the suspects fired multiple shots at the victim, striking the victim once. The victim, a local business owner, returned fire, striking both suspects.”

The business owner is expected to survive his injuries. Officers found one of the wounded suspects at the scene suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, while the other suspect was discovered around the corner, suffering from one gunshot wound.
