SASCHA WILSON

A bandit was killed when his intended victims opened fire at him during a robbery at a Princes Town bar, last night.

Police are yet to confirm the identity of the bandit, but he is believed to be a 26-year-old Petite Cafe resident.

According to initial police information, around 9:15 pm, two men—one armed with a firearm—entered Rosette Bar at Contention Road, Indian Walk and announced a hold up. There were patrons in the bar.

Fearful for their lives, the owner and a 64-year-old patron, a businessman, drew their licensed firearms and fired at the men.

The gunman collapsed on the ground where he died while his accomplice, described as Spanish looking, escaped.

Police seized the firearms belonging to the owner and the patron, as well as the bandit’s firearm.

Investigations are ongoing.
