Officers responded about 6:30 p.m. to 634 South Brea Boulevard (map) after a call reported two men attempting to rob the store, said Lt. Devereux of the Brea Police Department.

While one of the men pretended to make a purchase at the location, the other man brandished a handgun, Devereux said.

The weapon was discharged, and police believe it then fell to the ground. No injuries were reported.

The men absconded with an unknown amount of cash, according to Devereux. They were last seen fleeing southbound on Brea Boulevard.

A Fullerton police K-9 unit assisted in a search of the area. An investigation is ongoing.

Authorities released a surveillance photo of the two men, described as white or Hispanic, both in their 40s and heavyset.

The man with the gun had tattoo’s on his throat and the back of his next, a Brea Police Department news release stated.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the Brea Police Department at 714-990-7911 or contact Orange County Crime Stoppers at OCCRIMESTOPPERS.ORG or 855-847-6227.
