A thief died in a shoot-out in a supermarket in the Nervion area of Sevilla last Friday night after he and his accomplice were surprised by a 54-year-old off-duty police commissioner who happened to be in the store. Witnesses said the two robbers arrived on a moped which they left with the engine running outside the store. The commissioner was shopping inside with his wife and daughter, and realising that a robbery was underway, tried to intervene. When he made his presence known , the men took out their weapons and started firing. One thief was shot twice and died in the act, while the other made his escape. The police commissioner was injured in the groin.
