Bandits shoot passengers in robbery on public bus

Two passengers suffered bullet wounds Tuesday night when three men stuck up a bus in Sabana Sur.

The bus originated in Santa Ana and had made a stop at Multiplaza in Escazú. It was headed to San José. The Judicial Investigating Organization said that the men who had boarded as passengers pulled out guns and began threatening passengers. They took cell telephones and the money the driver carried, said the agency.

For some reason one of the bandits fired on the passengers and hit one in the shoulder and the other in the head, said the Judicial Investigating Organization. Both victims were reported in stable condition at Hospital San Juan de Dios in San José.
