Police are pursuing two men in connection with an armored car robbery in the Bronx Thursday that sent early-morning commuters scrambling for cover as gunfire erupted.
The robbers struck the armored car as it was parked outside a check-cashing facility on Third Avenue and 154th Street in the South Bronx.
Sources tell NBC New York that a bag of money was taken from the truck, carrying a large sum.
It's not clear if anyone was hit by gunfire.
Jorge Gonzalez, who was around the corner, said through an interpreter that he heard "like seven shots" and saw a gun-wielding suspect who appeared to be hit by gunfire.
He said he was scared when he saw the guns and feared he would be shot.
Another witness said: "I heard five or six shots and then saw people running and hiding behind the building over there."
The FBI has joined the investigation. There have been no arrests.
