Robbery suspect killed in shootout at San Diego Apple Store

A shootout at a San Diego, Calif., Apple Store occurred Monday morning before the store opened for business, during which one suspect was killed and two others were arrested.



The incident occurred at the Chula Vista Apple Store, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. Three suspects -- two men and a woman -- allegedly broke into the store at Otay Ranch Town Center on Birch Road before 7 a.m.



Police said the shootout occurred between the three suspects and a security guard who was at the shopping center. Shots were fired when at least one of the men allegedly took out a handgun and threatened the guard. The security guard was not harmed, according to NBC San Diego.



The would-be robbers got into a small car in an attempt to get away, but one man was mortally wounded. Their vehicle crashed into a light pole, and the surviving man and woman fled the scene, but the suspects were found by police around 8 a.m. hiding on a patio in a nearby residential neighborhood.



Police found two guns -- one on the suspect who died, and another on the man who was taken into custody. The manager of the Apple store was working inside when the incident occurred, but was not harmed. Nearby schools were also put on lockdown after the incident occurred.

    Glad no-one innocent was hurt.



    Maybe the iPad 2s should be sold as soon as they come in the door instead of being held until the next day... \

    What the hell?! An armed robbery at an Apple store. That's just weird to me.



    I bet dollars to donuts that things didn't go the way the robbers expected...

    Yes, I doubt any of them expected to get killed.

    I live near Pittsburgh. PA. The Apple Store in the Shadyside section of the city (of Pittsburgh), has been broken into 3 times in the last year/year and a half. I'm thinking you get away with some good Apple stuff, you can get good money......for drugs, Christmas, etc.

    These guys exchanged a lot of rounds... eventually the robber took one to the head (while driving the getaway Lexus).



    All this for a smash and grab. I wonder how the other two feel about their plan now.

    Give that man a free iPad 2! I mean the security guard of course.



    Ipad2's are so in demand that people are literally dying trying to get one.



    The only thing that could've made this story better is if some scalpers were caught in the middle of the shootout. Ok, I'm only kidding about that scalper comment, but I'm sure glad that at least one of the robbers is now dead.

    When criminals committing violent acts are killed, I don't care one iota.

    Not a shred of empathy for them. None.



    In fact Crime Stoppers should give the security guard some money.

    My thoughts exactly. You pull a gun, you are threatening to take a life if they don't comply with your demands. When the same perps get high velocity lead poisoning, I smile. The guard should get a medal and a new box of bullets.

    Gold plate that gun and stick it on his wall.



    I wonder if he'll at least put a notch in it.
