BREAKING: Police in shootout with armed robbers, 2 businesses robbed at gunpoint

Police and suspected armed robbers exchanged gunfire in a shootout along Victory Avenue on Saturday (3 March) night after two businesses are robbed at gunpoint.

The search is now on for the male robbers, both of whom escaped after shooting at police.

According to an RCIPS statement a short while ago no officers were injured in the encounter.

The incident started when police responded to reports of two armed robberies.

The first robbery happened just before 11 p.m. Police say two armed men robbed a mini mart in Industrial Park.

Following that, at around 11:15 p.m., two men also committed an armed robbery at a restaurant/bar in Bodden Town. No shots were fired during the robberies and no one was injured.

Police say they located a vehicle believed to be involved in the incidents along Hirst Road just after the second robbery. The vehicle tried to elude police. While on Victory Avenue, the occupants in the vehicle fired on police and police returned fire. The occupants fled the scene and police are conducting searches.

Anyone with any information about these incidents last evening are urged to call 911 or GTPS at 949-4222 right away.
