SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A gunman accused of robbing a market in San Diego's Grant Hill neighborhood was in custody Saturday.
The suspect, who is in his 20s, entered La Posta Market at 2796 K St. armed with a handgun around 10:45 p.m. Friday and demanded cash from an employee, said San Diego police Officer David Stafford.
The gunman fled in a Dodge truck driven by another male, he said.
Officers found the truck nearby with the gunman and driver inside and took both into custody, Stafford said.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled Tuesday for a former San Diego police officer accused of groping four women during pat-down searches last year.
Chula Vista police will be looking for drivers talking or texting on cell phones Tuesday and through the end of the month as part of "Distracting Driving Awareness Month."
Police were on the lookout Tuesday for the man who fired a shot while robbing a Rolando-area smoke shop and his accomplice who emptied its cash register.
