California police are looking for two suspects after they exchanged shots at a 7-Eleven in Montebello.
On Thursday, Montebello police released surveillance video of the incident and asked for the public’s help in identifying the two individuals involved in the shooting.
The exchange of gunfire occurred on Saturday, April 30 before 10 p.m. at a 7-Eleven at 800 S. Greenwood Avenue.
The video shows one of the suspects, wearing a light-colored long-sleeved shirt and what appeared to be a white baseball cap, running away from a line of customers toward the exit.
The person then crossed paths with the second suspect, who was dressed in a dark shirt and what appeared to be a black baseball cap with a light-colored logo.
The two seemed to exchange words and then started shooting at each other seconds later. Due to the gunfire, customers ducked and ran into the supermarket aisles as the cashier ducked behind the register.
The suspects exchange multiple shots until the first suspect leaves the store.
Police do not know why the two shot each other. “It’s unclear what prompted the shooting,” Montebello’s public information officer Michael Chee said in a statement.
“It appeared to be a likely robbery attempt after detectives interviewed some participants.”
Chee also revealed that no one was injured after the incident. “We are pleased to report that no one was injured or injured,” Chee said.
Miraculously, no one was injured by the bullets or gunfire. But the suspects remain at large.”
Javier Romero, one of 7-Eleven’s clerks, revealed that the store was riddled with bullets after the shooting.
“A police officer came in and said it was 15 shots,” Romero said. “Fifteen shots and no one hit? It’s crazy.”
The investigation is still ongoing. Law enforcement officers are asking anyone with information about the incident to contact detectives or share an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers.
