Police say the gunmen fled in a white car, which presumably was rented only to commit the crime.

Until this morning, there are no arrests in the case.

The second incident occurred shortly before 1:00pm, when to men tried to rob a delivery truck after it made its delivery and received payment, in the area of Barrio Cangrejos, on the road to Portete.
