ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a money carrier from an armored truck has been shot outside a central Florida Publix supermarket.

Altamonte Springs police officials say the shooting occurred during a robbery Thursday. Authorities say the money carrier was alive when he was transported to the hospital.

Three other people who complained of heart problems after the shooting also were taken to the hospital.

The robber escaped in a getaway car, but the car was found a short time later.

Police crime tape blocked the entrance to the supermarket, and more than a dozen police officers and deputies were outside the store.
