Attempted bank robbery in Longueuil ends tragically

A 32 year old man died last night when he attempted to rob two armed guards transporting money out of a TD bank in Longueuil.

The three men got into an altercation resulting in the would-be robber getting shot. He died in the hospital an hour later.

"During the altercation, one of the security guards fired a shot and hit the suspect. He was immediately brought to hospital", explains Longueuil police constable Mark David.

One of the armed guards also suffered a head injury but was released from hospital later this morning with his colleague.

Marc David says this type of incident is very uncommon.

"It's very rare that you'll see a lone man attacking two of these armed guards. Very very rare, I'd add", David told CJAD.

    I fail to understand where the tragedy is in this story. It would have been a tragedy if one of the guards had died in this robbery attempt but as far as I am concerned, the attempted robber got what he deserved. The story title should read either "Attempted armored car robber shot and killed." or "Attempted bank robbery in Longueuil ends with death of the robber."

    No tragedy here.

    The tragedy would have been if the armed guards were killed.

    Tragic would have been if the guard died. Since it was the robber I think it ended well.

    You guys are disgusting, since is it okay for people to get killed for trying to steal money? He only " got what he deserved" because you degenerates weren't there and don't carry a gun, you don't need a God to realize that killing a man for money makes you a disgusting evil piece of trash.
