St. Maarten – Three armed robbers dressed as women shot a security guard in his leg at the Atlantis Casino in Cupecoy yesterday around noon. The robbers entered the casino and went straight to the cashier, threatening this employee with a gun and demanding money.

The security guard confronted the robbers and was shot in his one of his legs. The robbers did not manage to get any cash and they fled the casino, possibly in a small car, after they shot the guard.

Paramedics treated the shooting victim on the scene. Later an ambulance took him to the St. Maarten Medical Center for further treatment.

Detectives were on the scene interviewing witnesses; the forensic department collected evidence. So far, the police have not arrested anyone.

Witnesses who may have information are invited to call the police station at 542 22 22, or the tip line at 9300.
