THE POLICE WERE NOT SHOOTING TO KILL . THEY SIMPLY RETURNED FIRE WHEN THEY WERE BEING SHOT AT BY THE ROBBERS. AND IN THE PROCESS THE ROBBERS GOT SHOT AND DIED. THE POLICE OFFICERS LIVES WERE IN EXTREAM DANDER AT THAT MOMENT. ONE THING THAT WE SHOULD KNOW IS THAT EVEN IN THE MOST ADVANCED COUNTRIES, THEY HAVE WHAT THEY CALL SWAT TEAMS WHO GO TO DEAL WITH ARMED ROBBERS. IMAKHALA , WAFA WAFA.
