No one hurt in jewelry heist try

Bullet holes were still present at Kennedy Jewelry, 2012 S. Main St., on Tuesday, after gunfire ripped through the store’s windows Monday evening when two armed men entered the store and demanded store employees turn over merchandise, according to a Chattanooga police report.

The report states that the men, both with covered faces, entered Kennedy Jewelry during business hours with an assault rifle and a laundry hamper.

One of the men said, “Get it all” or “All of it,” according to police. Then the armed man fired a shot, which struck the rear of the store.

According to police, Shane Kennedy, an employee, grabbed a handgun and fired several return shots at the robbers, who fled without taking anything.
