A woman has died during a shoot-out after police surprised two robbers holding up a bank in San Juan de Aznalfarache (Sevilla).
According to local sources, the shoot-out began just before 9am and the woman, thought to be about 50, died out in the street after getting caught in the crossfire.
It appears that two men were trying to rob the branch of Banca Cívica in Calle Antonio Machado in the San Juan Bajo district of San Juan de Aznalfarache, one of the towns on the outskirts of Seville, and were caught in the act by a pair of local police officers on patrol.
The same sources have confirmed that one of the would-be robbers has been detained, but the other managed to escape the scene. There is a police manhunt out for him.
Although the exact circumstances surrounding the woman's death have not been established, it appears that she was hit by a stray bullet whilst waiting at a bus stop opposite, about 15 metres away from the bank.
