The San Pedro Sun says that the police and robbers got into a fire exchange and one of the robbers was killed.

Yes it is scary, but I with a robber being shot and killed this might serve as an example to deter other would be robbers and theives.

Must be on the dreaded facebook as the website just has unknown if any injuries from a shopkeeper and robbers shootout. Shame they can't keep the web page updated too.

Was the one shot wearing a red and black waterproof jacket and new black Reebok size 9 trainers? They went missing the other day.
