According to sources, around 19:00 hrs at the M. Ally and Sons Supermarket at Pope Street, New Amsterdam two men entered into the store and held up Nazmoon Ali, who was in charge at the time.
The men reportedly gun butted Ali who refused to hand over the cash but the men found the drawer containing the cash and firearm and removed it..
After retrieving the cash and firearm from the draw the bandits proceeded to remove phone cards when they noticed a staff looking at them. One of the bandits shot at the sales woman but missed and instead hit his partner.
The staff reportedly stooped down after releasing the gun being pointed at her and as a result the other gunman was shot. They men quickly left the robbery scene and escaped in a waiting car that was parked on the corner of Pope Street.
Police have so far arrested an individual who is currently assisting with investigations. Police are also pursuing other suspects.
