The report said the police officers had wanted to retaliate after the robbers opened fire on them but their guns failed to fire.
It further stated that the guns of the officers failed to fire because they hadn’t been serviced and were, therefore, not ready for use.
The robbers fired into the vault lock, chiseled the wall to the vault to gain entrance, and stole from the safe.
The police who had no information about the robbery was attracted by the gunshots from the scene and moved in that direction.
The robbers realizing the police approaching managed to escape amidst firing.
