“Police responded to a robbery report at Henry’s Store on College Road, Corozal. Upon their arrival, they met a complainant who reported that two armed, masked men came to store and pointed firearms at him and stole an amount of cash. Thereafter, the male persons fled from the area and while fleeing from the area, they fired a shot while they were crossing the street. Quick police response led to the detention of two suspects in San Antonio Village and an amount of cash was found on one of the persons. Both persons are now in custody and investigation continues into this matter.”
