The jewelry store owner intervened as the suspects were inside, leading to a confrontation. It remains unclear whether the owner was already present or responded to a power outage triggered at least one business. During the altercation, at least one suspect sustained a gunshot wound to the arm.

The injured suspect was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries requiring surgery, as confirmed by police. Authorities are currently conducting a search for any additional suspects involved in the incident.
