“We were all locked up inside and didn’t really know what happened but then when we hear a gunshot, we peeped through the window and realise that the supermarket was getting robbed or got robbed. We pull back in and stayed quiet then later heard more noise. After a while my daughter-in-law watched out and see the police car them come and their lights were flashing but the thieves them done gone away,” the woman told INews.
It is unclear at this point in time what the bandits stole from the Chinese-owned business establishment, however, the entire incident was said to have been caught on the CCTV cameras.
