Police in Stockton are saying that a suspect’s gun fell apart during a robbery Saturday evening.
According to Stockton Police logs, two men walked into a business near E. Hammer and West Lanes around 7:22 p.m. One of the men soon pulled out a handgun and started pointing it at a clerk and the customers inside.
The other suspect then started grabbing money from the cash register.
As the suspects were leaving the business, a round was fired into the display cabinet. Near the door, police say that the suspect tried to fire off another round into the ceiling, only to have the gun fall apart.
Parts and live rounds from the gun fell to the floor, and the suspects ran from the store. Police say the two ran off in an unknown direction.
Only vague descriptions of the suspects have been given.
