The Shady Grove Police are reporting that two suspected robbers were arrested in Shady Grove, St Catherine on Tuesday.

The men tried to escape and the vehicle crashed, according to the police.

They then reportedly exited the vehicle, opened gunfire at the police, and fled into the area.

With the assistance of the Point Hill Police and the Linstead Police, the area was searched and two men—suspected to be among the robbers—were caught.

The police say one of the men had gunshot injuries and was taken to hospital, where he was admitted under police guard.
