This is the confiscated revolver and bullets.

Two teens who were acting suspiciously at a bus stop fled when police approached, and then they opened fire on officers.

The Fuerza Pública in Siquirres said officers later detained one of the suspects and found that he was carrying a .38-caliber revolver that had been reported stolen from a Pococí security company. He is 16, they said.

No police were injured in the one-sided shootout. The two young men fled into the hills when police approached, said the security ministry. The bus stop is on Ruta 32, the main Limón-San José highway at a section called Freehold.
