Police seek masked gunmen after terrifying robbery at 61 Supermarket

Posted: Thursday, May 23, 2024. 7:06 am CST.

By Horace Palacio: An attempted robbery at the 61 Supermarket on Flamboyant Street in San Ignacio Town yesterday morning left the store’s owner, Dake Yu, 54, wounded.

According to police reports, two men on a motorcycle arrived at the supermarket around 8:28 AM. The passenger, wearing a helmet, entered the store while the driver waited outside.

Yu, who was monitoring his surveillance cameras, noticed the suspicious activity and drew his licensed firearm. When he confronted the would-be robber, the individual opened fire, striking Yu in the right shoulder before fleeing with his accomplice.

Police arrived on the scene and collected evidence, including a slug and a metal jacket recovered from the store. Surveillance footage of the incident was also secured.

Yu was taken to San Ignacio Community Hospital, where he was treated for a gunshot wound to his right shoulder and released. His injuries were classified as “wounding.”

The police are investigating the incident and are urging anyone with information to come forward.
