Jewelry Store Owner Shoots At Robbers

Miramar, Florida

From the April 23, 2008 South Florida Sun-Sentinel:
The robbery happened about 10:45 a.m. at Emily's Jewelry in the 14400 block of Miramar Parkway, police spokesman Bill Robertson said.

The men, one of whom had a gun, barged into the store while owners Rafael and Idia Esquivel were inside.

The armed man pointed the gun at the couple, and the other grabbed a bag of jewelry on the counter, Robertson said.

As the robbers fled into a waiting car, Rafael Esquivel chased them and fired three shots, Robertson said.

Detectives do not know if Esquivel, 61, struck either robber, the spokesman said.
