Two muggers who were trying to rob the same Mexico City bus at the same time this week wound up shooting each other to death when they encountered one another in the aisle of the vehicle. BuzzFeed reports that in the back of the bus, two teenagers armed with a knife and a gun began snatching passengers' wallets and cell phones as they made their way up the aisle toward the front of the bus.
Meanwhile, unbeknownst to them, an armed 34-year-old man who had been seated in the first row of the bus began robbing his way toward the back of the bus. When all three met in the middle, the two robbers with guns fired on one another. Said local prosecutor Eduardo Carreno Alvarado at a Wednesday press conference, "They must've thought the other was a cop."
