CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cleveland police were investigating an incident that occurred at Krush clothing store at 1360 West 9th Street at 7 p.m. Monday.

Officers were dispatched and SWAT was called for shots fired in connection with a robbery and customers inside of the store in the Warehouse District.

One witness caught the initial scene on video moments after the shooting. You can hear someone say off camera, "SWAT right there. Sniper rifles." 

It appears an armed robbery got violent and shots were fired. 

Tom Bobak saw it all go down. 

"All of a sudden they say, 'That's the guy.' and there are cops everywhere. They jump back and he puts his hands up and they corral him right here on the corner," Bobak said.

Police had four streets blocked off during the incident. 

The store's owner eventually came outside and told police the alleged shooters were gone.

Four people, in addition to the owner, were held for questioning.

No one was injured.
