The police are still searching for the accomplice of a man who was arrested following a robbery at Tassant Road, off Trafalgar Road in Kingston.

A store owner and an employee were reportedly robbed of several items including an iPhone, a gold chain, a wallet and $6,000 during the incident yesterday.

It is reported that shortly after midday, an armed man and an accomplice went into a store and demanded the valuables from the store owner and employee.

A licensed firearm holder, who was a customer at the store, observed what was taking place and opened fire at the robbers who returned fire while making their escape.

One of the men boarded a bus which was later intercepted by the Police.

The police say the man was apprehended and a pistol containing 11 rounds seized.

The police were yet to charge the man in custody up to late yesterday evening.
