VISTA — An employee at a Vista restaurant fired shots at two men who tried to rob the business at gunpoint Friday night, a sheriff’s official said.

The attempted robbery was reported about 9:40 p.m. at Uncle Tony’s Italian Cuisine on Sycamore Avenue, near Shadowridge Drive.

The employee said he fired several shots at the attempted robbers, who fled without taking anything, sheriff’s Lt. Dave Schaller said. He told deputies he thought he hit both of them. No blood was found at the scene, but two gunshot victims showed up about midnight at a North County hospital, Schaller said.

The men fled in a white two-door vehicle, possibly a Honda, the lieutenant said.

One was described as Latino, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, with a medium build. He wore a black hoodie, a blue bandanna over his face and khaki pants. The other man was described only as about 6 feet 2 inches tall, with his face covered. Both carried handguns.

Good shooting but needs more practice.

“Uncle Tony’s Italian Cuisine”

Probably not a good idea to rob a place named Uncle Tony’s Italian Cuisine.

Definitely not. These punks figured that out too late.

If the perps had been black Je$$e and Al would be calling for an arrest. But they weren’t so the restaurant employee is probably safe.

They weren't robbing the place. They just wanted IT and skillets.

They were not under life extenuating circumstances.

Indeed. But now he’ll probably get fired.

California?
I'm surprised the employee didn't get arrested - and then fired.
