Two Mexican nationals who were shot during an armed robbery Friday afternoon have been released from hospital.
Enrique Suarez, believed to be in his fifties, and Denis Gonsalez, 28, were shot in the leg by bandits about 3.20 pm.
Suarez is the Manager of the Suarez Brothers circus which opens here Saturday night while Gonsalez is an employee.
Bandits, one armed with a handgun and the other with a knife, pulled up in a Suzuki Swift and demanded that a pouch be handed over, according to an eyewitness.
The eyewitness said the gunman opened fire when he encountered some resistance and started firing indiscriminately when workers at the site of the circus at Malabar Beach tried to intervene.
A spokesman for the circus said Suarez and Gonsalez both want to put the incident behind them and concentrate on getting the circus going.
