This is the moment an armed robber bursts into a clothes shop with a female accomplice and is repeatedly shot at point blank range by a security guard before staggering outside.

The suspect, named in reports as 29-year-old Jorge Alejandro Banda Ramos, went to the shop in the city of Monterrey in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon with the woman accomplice. After being shot, he reportedly died in the street after having fled the scene.

The video footage shows Banda Ramos, who reportedly had a criminal record for public use of weapons and drug trafficking, being shot by the guard and it has been shared on Twitter where it has been viewed over 200,000 times.

In the footage, a young woman that was allegedly the accomplice is seen standing outside the entrance as a female worker opens the door for her.

While the door is ajar, the woman and Banda Ramos, who is holding a gun, suddenly force their way inside.

Banda Ramos is seen struggling with a worker in a blue shirt just as the guard appears and shoots at the man at least three times from close range.

According to local media, Banda Ramos died of his injuries several metres from the shop.

His female accomplice, identified as 22-year-old Diana Belem, who was confirmed as his girlfriend, has been arrested by the police after first being detained by shop staff.

The investigation is ongoing. It was also reported that the pair had a third partner in crime but it is unknown if the third accomplice has been identified and arrested yet.
