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.

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

Thank you Jim. Some bugger stole my jacket and trainers from my balcony and was hoping they had shot him.
