Two men accused of robbing a Bakersfield jewelry store are now charged with attempted murder. The owner said they fired at him during the crime.
The men are also charged with felony robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. A third robber is still at large.
This surveillance video is silent, but it shows a normal Thursday afternoon at Southwest Coins and Jewelry on Ming Avenue, quickly turn into chaos.
A family with a 7-month-old baby ducks down as three masked men run into the store.
Although it's blurry you can see one of them has a handgun. In the front of the store you can see another man banging a hammer into a glass jewelry case.
The store's owner told us he had a gun in his pocket and fired a shot at the robbers as they attacked him.
The owner says the men wrestled that gun away from him so he grabbed another gun from the back of the store.
It's hard to see in the video, but the owner says the men shot at him twice leaving bullet holes in his shop. One hole has been carved out for evidence by police, and another is still in the wood of a shelf in the back of the store.
Police said 26-year-old Randon McQuiller and 24-year-old Kevin Newsome are two of the men involved. A third man is still at large.
McQuiller and Newsome entered not guilty pleas in court Tuesday.
Bail for McQuiller was set at $1,085,000. Newsome's bail is $1,125,000.
Both defendants are due back in court at the beginning of October.
The Kern County District Attorney's Office would not comment on this case, but says both men, if convicted, could receive life sentences in prison.
