The FBI and the Robbinsville Township Police Department are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at approximately 6:45 a.m. on December 6, 2011. Shortly thereafter, the Robbinsville Police Department received several 911 calls reporting shots fired in the area of 1 Union Street. While police were responding to the incident, an additional call was received reporting a male shooting victim in the area of 4 Union St. Upon arrival, police observed the 50-year-old male victim lying in front of 4 Union St. The police learned that a black male and a Hispanic male robbed the victim of cash during a scuffle and then shot the victim as he tried to flee. The two suspects left the area Westbound on Union St. in a black Ford Ranger being operated by an unknown white male. The FBI and Robbinsville Police Department Criminal Investigations Unit continue to investigate the incident.
