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.
