An armed robbery attempt at a Salt Lake City pawn shop was foiled Tuesday afternoon when employees at the store returned gunfire, forcing the intruders to flee, police reported.

The shootout happened around 11:15 a.m., when two men entered Pickle's Pawn at 1514 S. State St., according to Salt Lake City police Sgt. Fred Louis.

Two employees exchanged fire with the would-be bandits, who were last seen jumping into a white Chevrolet Cavalier with two women.

No one was injured. [Unfortunately, they missed.]

As of Tuesday evening, police were still trying to determine the identities and whereabouts of the suspects, who are believed to be in their twenties.
