Several hours after breaking into the store, the shooter escaped and police arrested him soon after with the intervention of a car. The hostage inside the Apple Store is safe and unharmed.
The police have not yet discovered the reasons that led the man to make this gesture, but according to the first information it seems that it was an armed robbery.
