Professor caught in crossfire in stickup at university

Gunmen ambushed an armored car on the Universidad de Costa Rica campus Thursday, and a passing teacher suffered a bullet wound.

The woman, identified by the last name of Guzmán, teaches education classes.

The gunmen appear to have staked out an automatic teller machine and awaited the arrival of the vehicle carrying money. But the guards also were armed. The crooks fled off the San Pedro campus without managing to get any of the money.
