    Police in Chula Vista have arrested four suspects believed to be responsible for an early morning armed robbery.

    At about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, a man was exiting his garage in the 1000 block of Dorado Way when two suspects confronted him, pointed a gun at him, and forced him to lie down at gunpoint, according to a statement from the Chula Vista Police Department. 

    While the two suspects ransacked the man's garage, one suspect fired one round into the ceiling. The round penetrated into the home's master bedroom where the man's wife was sleeping. She was not injured. 

    The suspects left with some of the victim's property, including his cell phone. 

    Officers were called to the scene and tracked the victim's cell phone to a vehicle with a man and a woman in it, as well as some of the victim's possessions. The two people were arrested.

    The phone led officers to an address where two additional suspects were arrested. 

    All four suspects face charges of robbery, conspiracy, and several firearms charges. They were booked into County Jail.
