Robbery and Shooting At Old Gyumri

From the News-Press, another another attempted robbery and shooting at a restaurant in my immediate neighborhood, this time by two masked men:

Shortly after midnight Saturday, two armed and masked suspects entered the Old Gyumry Restaurant in the 4400 block of San Fernando Road and demanded money, police said.

The restaurant owner, Levon Taryn, refused to cooperate, and a struggle ensued.

During the scuffle, one of the suspects opened fire and struck the owner in the abdomen, hand and leg.

He's out of the hospital and doing well. Scary. Old Gyumri is pretty good and the family running it are very nice. Off the top of my head, other similar crimes nearby include a cash register theft at Tacos El Sauz across San Fernando Road, an attempted robbery at the Dominos Pizza on Central, and another robbery at gunpoint at Hamburger Central, also on Central. And of course, a female employee was shot during a robbery at Pizza Hut on Central.
