Isabella’s Fine Jewelry was locked when the intruders broke in, Huntington Beach Police Department spokeswoman Jessica Cuchilla said, and they forcibly entered the store when the owner was helping a customer, according to a report.

The intruders “forcibly entered a business with weapons & an exchange of gunfire occurred as the store owner defended himself. The [intruders] fled in 2 vehicles n/b onto the 405,” the police department tweeted.

After the owner shot at the intruders, the would-be robbers fled in two different vehicles, which each had more than one passenger, police said.
