“I am going to turn myself in, but the state police are the ones who are going to kill me… We are here on 15th Street, I am going to turn myself in. The state are the ones who are shooting”, one of the criminals is heard saying.
“We are still alive, there is our face. I’m just asking you to get down, I’m going to turn myself in,” added the gunmen shortly before the police entered the house where they were.
