A pair of robbers got a little more than they bargained for... When they found themselves temporarily trapped inside a South Florida pawn shop.

Security video shows the suspects entering Cash Inn Pawn Shop in West Park and then quickly brandishing a weapon.

Customers can be seen scrambling for cover.

One of the shop's employees shot at the suspects who returned fire.

In a mad rush to escape, the suspects struggled to open the front door.

Instead, they decided to slide through the small opening between the metal bars and the display counter. That plan proved challenging as the bigger of the two men became stuck between the counter and the bars.

They did eventually flee out the back doors.

No one was injured in the incident.

Police are still looking for the suspects.
