Armed robbers shot to death, a police officer and an eyewitness, during a robbery incident involving a bullion van at Adedenkpo, a suburb of James Town in Accra, Monday.
According to an eyewitness, the police officer was providing security for the van while the young lady was a bystander who witnessed the incident.
