MANCHESTER, Jamaica — A manhunt has been launched for two gunmen who posed as customers before robbing a bar of an undetermined sum of cash at Nashville in Mandeville on Tuesday evening.

Preliminary reports are that the gunmen entered the bar shortly after 7:00pm and held up the establishment.

The robbery, which was captured on closed circuit television (CCTV), shows the men holding a bartender and another man, who appeared to be a customer at gunpoint, while demanding that cash be loaded into a bag.

The men then made their escape.
