Three people, including two suspected robbers and a security guard, died when armed subjects tried to rob an armored car Monday at a shopping center in Mexico City, a Federal District Public Safety Secretariat spokesman told Efe.
Two suspected “crooks and a guard” died during the attempted robbery Monday morning of the Sepsa company truck, the spokesman said.
The incident occurred at the Plaza Galerias shopping center in the western section of Mexico City, where the robbers and guards engaged in a gunfight.
The bodies of three people were found at the scene by police, who launched a search for the other robbers.
