Masked Robber Meets Armed Citizen

A criminal intent on robbing the Captain Max Seafood restaurant in Miramar, Fla., got way more than he bargained for. About two hours after the owner of the Adam & Eve Hair Salon next door spotted a suspicious man casing the property, an armed masked man entered the restaurant shortly before 6 p.m. last Wednesday. 

The suspect, 26-year-old Roosevelt Jones, got into a verbal altercation with one of the employees, who then drew a gun of his own and shot and killed Jones. It’s unclear whether both men fired, but a customer who was in the restaurant drive-thru remembered thinking, “it was like four gunshots.” 

No one else was injured, and police said a second person may have been involved in the attempted robbery. Jones had been released from state prison in October after serving time for armed carjacking and fleeing from a law enforcement officer.
