Gang Of Armed Robbers Fatally Shoot Man Trying To Stop Jewelry Store Robbery
VICTORVILLE (CBS) — Authorities Tuesday continued to search for a group of armed and dangerous thieves in the Inland Empire and apparently have recovered the getaway car in Compton.
The suspects, identified as four men, are wanted in connection with the shooting death of 58-year-old Inho Lee of Victorville.
Jodi Miller of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department tells CBS2’s Greg Mills that Lee was apparently pursuing the suspects as they were attempting to flee the jewelry store “at which time one of the suspects did turn around and fired shots at Mr. Lee.”
The shooting occurred at the Indoor Swap Meet on La Paz Drive and Seventh Street on Monday afternoon.
Lee was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
No arrests have been made.
