Armed Criminal Shot On Victim’s Front Lawn

posted on October 26, 2016

Riviera Beach, Fla., police responded quickly to a shooting in a residential neighborhood last weekend—and arrived to find a man lying in the road. The man, Julnord Vilsaint, apparently picked the wrong barbecue to rob. 

Police spokeswoman Rose Anne Brown told Florida’s WPTV-TV that Vilsaint had walked up to three local residents who were grilling on the front lawn, pointed a gun at them, then demanded cells phones, money and other valuables. As tensions escalated, one of the victims took a shotgun from the rear of his truck bed and fired two shots at the attacker.

The Palm Beach County Medical Examiner and investigators found a handgun, as well as one of the victims’ cell phones, under Vilsaint’s body. In addition, police discovered a car nearby that was believed to have been stolen by Vilsaint before the shooting.
