THUGS TRY TO ROB GAS STATION, GET SHOT BY COPS
A police officer who happened to stop at a Total gas station in the Corujo sector of Bayamón inadvertently walked in on two individuals who were in the process of robbing the establishment at around 10:00 AM today. Sergeant Pedro Colón Burgos was soon followed by a municipal police officer and a member of the state police's canine unit. A gunfight quickly broke out between the two parties, and one of the criminals was injured by gunfire in several parts of his body. The man's uninjured accomplice ran off, but was soon arrested by the roadside as he tried to flag down a car to steal. Both men are now in custody, and a stolen vehicle was impounded at the scene. The police officers were not hurt.
