The ice cool officer chased the robbers with the ice cream on his hand, without dropping it.
Local media reported that a young man was found near the scene with gunshot wounds to his chest. Police believe the man is one of the suspects in the rampage as he has a criminal record. He was rushed to the hospital. The officer arrested the other suspect.
