Shortly after, and alerted by those responsible for the supermarket, members of the Guàrdia Urbana de Tarragona arrived at the scene. The robber had already fled the scene. Through the video surveillance cameras of the supermarket, the agents have been able to verify that the perpetrator of the robbery was carrying a firearm, although they do not know if it is a real weapon or, on the contrary, simulated.
