Two men tried to hold up a soft drink delivery truck crew Thursday afternoon in Cangrejos, Limón. In the gun battle that followed, one of the presumed robbers died and a guard on the delivery truck suffered a bullet in the shoulder, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.
The dead man was said to be 21, according to agents.
The second robber fled, and it is believed it was he who delivered the bullet that hit the guard.
Most delivery crews in Costa Rica include a guard or there is a guard close by.
