While we hear of a new armed robbery or hijacking almost every day, it’s satisfying when we hear or see positive stories about police going toe to toe with robbers. Ok, not positive but it’s still encouraging to see the police on the scene quickly.

Video has emerged of a cash-in-transit heist in Springfield Park on Monday. Police reacted to a business robbery and approached the alleged robbers when a shootout broke out. Five fatalities have been confirmed, three suspects were arrested, one was shot and killed and other four fled the scene in a getaway vehicle.

Yusuf Abramjee posted the particularly alarming video on Twitter, the man behind the camera managed to capture the police in pursuit of the robbers as bullets flew both ways.
