Armed Taco Bell workers shoot, kill robbery suspect

Armed Taco Bell workers shoot, kill robbery suspect

Armed employees at a Cleveland Taco Bell shot and killed a would-be robber early Wednesday, police said.

Police responded to the store in the city's Edgewater neighborhood shortly before 3 a.m. and found the suspect suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The unidentified man was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead.

A second suspect fled the scene.

Investigators say five Taco Bell employees were in the store when the suspects came in wearing masks and ordered them to get on the ground. Three of the employees opened fire, striking the suspect.

Police said no arrests had been made.

In a statement, Taco Bell said the company was offering counseling to the restaurant workers and was cooperating with the investigation.

I like this story and the position that Taco Bell is taking with their employees.

Probably the safest Taco Bell in the Nation. And another perp takes a dirt nap. Good for them.

They could have saved the bullets and just gave them a bag of their food and let nature take its course and kill them...

Great to hear the people are starting to stand up and not take this thuggery anymore.

I'm surprised they didn't fire the employee, as we so often hear! Many of these companies take a stance of, don't resist, just give them the money. And really, think about it...you're a minimum wage earner, is it worth it to resist? So fine, give them the money but if they are going to take you out in the process, then give em hell! Glad he still has a job.

Flo, read it again, this is the part I liked about it, there were 3 armed employees that shot and killed the dirt-bag.

Triangulation always works better then one round straight on.

Awesome Taco Bell people! But they could work on the tactical response, everyone don't shot the same perp however it could have been tactically perfect and they shot the only perp with a weapon.

I'll have a burrito supreme, two tacos and a 9mm to go!
