“When they [police] got there the robbers had succeeded in taking an unspecified amount of money from one gold dealer named Beduma. And in the course of the robbery, they started firing indescriminately and two persons were hit with a bullet; one died at the hospital and the other is responding to treatment”, the police chief said.
