Chula Vista police said three people smashed the window to break into the Apple Store in Otay Ranch Town Center early Monday and were confronted by an armed security guard, who shot one of the intruders in the head.
The mortally injured man was found in the mall parking lot a short distance away, collapsed in his car, Chula Vista police said.
Two other suspects were apprehended after fleeing on foot. The smash and grab happened at 7am in the morning before any shoppers were present.
There are reports that 40 shots were fired in the exchange.
The male suspects and their alleged female accomplice then got into a silver Acura that crashed while still inside the shopping center’s parking lot, Facicci said, noting that one of the men was driving and he died in the crash. He appears to have been killed by a bullet that went through the passenger window, Chula Vista Police said.
