VIRGINIA BEACH -- Police said a robbery attempt behind the Chimney Hill Shopping Center ended in gunfire Saturday afternoon.

Officers said it happened at about 1:30 p.m. and that the alleged robber and victim were minors.

People in the area saw a police helicopter above it.

'As I was walking, a police officer was walking down with a K-9,' Demarris Bowden told 13News Now, 'so the first thing I did was run to the other side because I didn't want no part of that.'

Beach police stressed the incident was isolated. They have not said if they have made any arrests.
