Suspect Dead After Botched Robbery Outside Restaurant

posted on June 25, 2015

Two individuals were leaving a Benihana restaurant in Dallas, Texas, when they were accosted by a pair of strangers who reportedly asked to borrow a cigarette lighter. While the diners were distracted, one man then pulled a mask over his face and drew a firearm. But one of the intended victims had a gun of his own in his car, which he retrieved and opened fire.

Both the would-be robber and the armed citizen were shot in the ensuing exchange, but the intended victim’s injuries were not life-threatening. The assailant was killed, and police are currently on the lookout for the second suspect, who fled the scene.
