    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Sounds like a simular Jewlery store failure back in the 90's here in Richmond. They didn't fair to well either.

    Jewelry heist turns into shootout
    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) - Police are investigating a jewelry heist that turned bad for the two would-be robbers when the store employees shot them, critically wounding one of them.

    One of the men was arrested at the store and taken to the hospital in critical condition.

    The other took off in a car, but was caught a few miles away.

    The attempted robbery took place at the Bentley Jewelry Store located at 2750 Oakland Park Blvd. Both suspects were injured in a shootout with the store owner, with one shot in the head and the other in the chest.

    The pair fled the scene in a gray sports utility vehicle headed westbound towards Andrews Avenue with two flat tires before they were apprehended. Both were transported to the hospital in critical condition.

    Thge employees were not hurt.

    Police continue to investigate the crime scene.

    Two armed wanna-be jewelry thieves in Fort Lauderdale collected lead slugs instead of gems Wednesday morning after they faced-off against a store owner who was packing a handgun, police said.

    The gun battle, which took place shortly after 11 a.m. at Bentley's 1900 Jewelers on E. Oakland Park Boulevard, left the two bandits in critical condition, said Fort Lauderdale police spokeswoman Kathy Collins.

    ''The first bad guy got shot in the head and was stopped,'' Collins said.

    ``The second bad guy tried to get away, despite being shot several times, but we caught him a few minutes later.''

    Police are on the scene and are investigating

    Botched Lauderdale store robbery ends with 2 alleged gunmen shot by owners

    FORT LAUDERDALE --Two men who tried to rob a Fort Lauderdale jewelry store at gunpoint were shot and critically wounded by the store owners in a gun battle, police said Wednesday.

    The two men pretended to be customers at Bentley's Jewelers at 2753 E. Oakland Park Blvd. about 11 a.m., said Detective Katherine Collins, spokeswoman for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. At some point, she said, the two men pulled out guns to rob the store.

    At least one of the store's owners, however, pulled out a gun as well. Both sides exchanged fire. One of the robbers was shot in the upper torso and fell critically wounded in the store, Collins said. The other, bleeding from several wounds, stumbled outside to a silver SUV and fled, she said.

    The fleeing SUV smashed into two parked vehicles and one occupied car, Collins said. No one was injured in the crashes.

    The person in the car was able to call police and give a description of the SUV and a partial license plate number, Collins said.

    Within a few minutes, a bulletin was issued for a silver SUV fleeing from a hit-and-run, said Wilton Manors police officer Greg Gardner. He spotted the SUV and pulled it over at Oakland Park Boulevard near North Andrews Avenue with several Fort Lauderdale officers assisting.

    The man surrendered peacefully.

    "He had blood on him from here [pointing to the chest] all the way down to his knees," Gardner said.

    Both men were rushed to Broward General Medical Center with critical, life-threatening injuries, Collins said. The jewelry store owners were unhurt.

    Police have not release the names of any of the people involved yet. Corporate records indicate the store is owned by Hugo R. Villalta.

    Carter McDonald said he has been a customer of Villalta's for 15 years and he was going to pick up a watch Wednesday.

    "He's one of the most loved and respected members of this community," McDonald said. He added that Villalta has an extensive security system in place. "If anyone tried to make a move on Hugo, they made a mistake."

    Police have not filed any charges. The investigation continues.

    Under Florida laws, a citizen is allowed to use deadly force to defend oneself or others if someone is in danger of death or great bodily harm. The state's still-fresh "Stand Your Ground" law also says that citizens do not have any duty to try and retreat before using deadly force.
    And on TV just now the reporter said one of them is not expected to survive.
