A 26-year-old man who attempted to rob a bar in Princes Town last night was shot dead by the proprietor.
The deceased has been identified as Kurdial Cooper, of 19 Petite Café Sadville, Indian Walk.
Loop News was told that at about 9:35pm the suspect entered the bar with a mask over his face, armed with a firearm.
He announced a hold-up and proceeded to fire a shot at the door of the bar area.
Three persons in the bar, who were holders of licensed firearms, drew their weapons and shot at the 26-year-old robber.
Cooper, on seeing the men armed with guns, attempted to run – all while shooting his gun.
