  • SAN DIEGO (7/1213)--A man jumped up on the counter and fired a shot during a robbery of the El Cajon branch of San Diego-based California Coast CU Tuesday. No one was injured (U-T San Diego First Edition July 10 and July 10). The incident occurred at about 5 p.m., when the man entered, jumped up on the counter and shouted at employees to give him money.

As part of the registration process for the promotion, participants must watch a short video of local DJ Eric O'Brien talking about a financial topic.
