A woman was shot in the leg during an attempted robbery that happened while she was eating outdoors at Il Pastaio, a popular restaurant in Beverly Hills.
The unidentified woman was transported to a local hospital and she’s being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Beverly Hills Police Department.
The incident happened at around 2pm on Thursday afternoon (March 4) and it occurred in broad daylight. Three men approached a table and demanded property from another patron and one of the suspects then shot the woman. All of the suspects then fled on foot.
An eyewitness said that the suspects were trying to steal a man’s watch.
“They (tried to) rob his watch. He was fighting with them,” the witness, who is friends with the man with the watch, told ABC7. “And while they were fighting, he pulled the gun and the gun shot one of the girls.”
CBS Los Angeles reports that it was a targeted robbery for a Richard Mille watch, which is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. It does not appear that the suspects were targeting the restaurant specifically.
Il Pastaio is frequented by stars like Justin and Hailey Bieber, Katharine McPhee and David Foster, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, and the Hadid family.
