The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office is looking for two masked gunmen who held up a Chualar market on Monday evening. Deputies said the men entered the Amigo Market and Laundry at 24415 Grant St. around 6:15 p.m. wearing black clothes, ski masks and carrying handguns, according to the sheriff’s office. The men told customers and employees to lie down and demanded money, but store employees were frightened and ran out from behind the counter, sheriff’s officials said.

The men then fled without having taken any money, though one suspect did fire his gun, striking a display shelf, according to the sheriff’s office. No one was injured in the incident. Sheriff’s officials said the suspects are described as Hispanic men who are about 5 feet 5 inches tall and 5 feet 11 inches tall, respectively.
