(Newser) – Four armed robbers stormed the Paris Apple store last night and made off with more than $1.6 million worth of products, the Daily Mail reports. The gunmen raided the store around 9pm, three hours after it closed, as police were busy preparing for the large crowds expected in the city for New Year's Eve celebrations. One employee was injured; the masked robbers are thought to have attacked a security guard. Police are still on the hunt.
