NEW YORK DAILY NEWS – Florida cops shot and killed a suspected bank robber armed with a barber’s razor in the middle of a Miami Beach road, officials said.
Dramatic video recorded by a passerby showed the suspect clutch his chest and fall to the ground after a Miami Beach officer opened fire.
The unidentified man held up a Bank of America around 10:30 a.m., officials told NBC Miami. He told the teller he had a bomb, an employee who called 911 said.
The suspect fled the bank when cops arrived and ran into a nearby barbershop. He grabbed a straightedge razor and ran into the street, where he was surrounded by officers.
The brief, tense standoff was recorded in the bystander’s video. In the footage, the man took a step toward the armed officers and placed his hand on a squad car. One of the cops fired, and the man fell to the ground.
