The robbers made away with an unspecified amount of money after shooting Sekandi Irene the cashier in back’’, said Owoyesigire.
According to Police, responders rushed the victim to Namirembe hospital in Mukono for first aid before she was later transferred to Nsambya hospital where she is currently admitted.
‘’The police responded to the scene and have subsequently recorded statements from eyewitnesses. We have also noted that the thugs knew the routine at the supermarket as they attacked when the security guard was aiding customers and putting their bought merchandise into vehicles and he only got to pick up his gun after the incident’’, added Owoyesigire.
Police say at the time of the attack, the supermarket guard wasn’t armed and therefore called for strict supervision of all deployed guards to make sure they do their job as per the description.
‘’The hunt for the suspects is ongoing and more details will be available as soon as they are available’’, further noted Owoyesigire.
