The following is a copy from one of my local news agencies.
ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. -- Three masked gunman fired shots during a robbery attempt at a crowded Adams County store Tuesday evening.
During Tuesday's big snow storm, the robbery attempt occurred about 6:25 p.m. at the Plaza Latina store, 7043 Pecos St., said Adams County sheriff's spokesperson Sgt. Candi Baker.
Three men, armed with handguns and a shotgun, entered the store and immediately began shooting, frightening 15 employees and five customers inside, Baker said. No injuries were reported.
Saying nothing, the gunman began shattering showcases containing jewelry, said store owner Maria Ly, who was not at the shop during the robbery.
"People inside the store were screaming," Ly told TheDenverChannel.com.
Employees believe all the shouting scared off the would-be robbers, who left empty-handed, Ly said. After fleeing the shop, the men briefly returned and fired more shots.
How would you react when the first shots were fired? If you did nothing, how about when they came back in?
Let's not comment on the stupidity of the BGs or speculate on the motives. Just put yourself in the position of one of the shoppers when this happens.
