The bloody incident occurred in the community of Bocas de Ayapal around 1 p.m. when an armed group of men reportedly tried to rob the general supply store “Variedades Axel,” according to the police report. The gang was confronted by a joint patrol of police and soldiers who shot and killed six of the armed assailants. Four policemen––three of whom were volunteers––were also killed in the shootout. One member of the criminal gang, identified as Marlon Guevara, was injured and captured by police.
