Armed Suspect Killed in Police-Involved Shooting on Alton Road in Miami BeachShooting suspect2015-12-05T22:52:02.000Z

A bystander’s video shows Miami Beach, Florida, police shoot and kill an armed bank robbery suspect Saturday morning on a busy city street.

The shirtless suspect, who has not been identified, was holding a razor blade, police said. Miami Beach Police Chief Daniel Oates told reporters the man went into a barber shop after being spotted by officers searching for him, and came out with a straight-edge razor.

The video shows the man pointing the razor toward one of the officers. He was then shot twice by an officer holding an AR-15-style rifle nearly simultaneously. The video appears to show another officer hit the suspect with a stun gun almost at the same time or right before the shot was fired, but police have not confirmed if that device was used.

One of the officers was wearing a body camera, but the video has not been made public.

The shooting will be investigated by the Miami-Dade Police.
