Shot Fired in Armed Robbery in Santa Monica:

Police are looking for suspects in a robbery of a Subway fast-food restaurant in Santa Monica last night, in which a gun was fired but no one was hurt.

On July 5, at approximately around 10:30 p.m., a man walked into the Subway on the corner of Lincoln Boulevard and Pico Boulevard, not far from Santa Monica High School (SaMoHi), and asked to purchase a cookie. After handing the employee some money, the suspect removed a handgun and demanded the cash from the register.

The victim had trouble opening the register at which time the suspect reaches over the counter and begins trying to open the drawer himself. As the suspect is trying to get the drawer open, he fired one round from the handgun he was holding in his other hand into the wall behind the counter. No one was injured and the suspect fled to a waiting vehicle with the cash drawer, containing an unknown amount of cash.

The primary suspect is described as a black male, in his 30s, and between 5 foot 6 inches and 8 inches. He has short black hair and dark complexion. He was wearing dark baseball hat, dark long sleeve shirt, and dark shorts.

The getaway car was described as a newer dark sedan was driven by a Hispanic male, with short hair and medium complexion.

Richard Lewis, the departments public information officer, can be reached at 310.458.8462 or [email protected]
