Two armed robbery suspects were killed while one escaped after a shootout with the police in Warri, Delta State. The three suspects reportedly robbed their victim at gun point about 2:00pm Tuesday, November 1st and dispossessed of him of the sum of N300, 000, three handsets and other valuables before fleeing on a tricycle.
However, the victim sent a distress call to men of the anti-robbery squad, got into his car and traced the suspects to Agbassa junction, between Warri/Sapele road. The police gave the suspects a hot chase and a gun battle ensued which lead to the death of two of the suspects, while the third escaped.

A senior police source said one cut-to-size pistol, the tricycle used by the suspects, one live cartridge and two expended cartridges were recovered from the gang.
