An armed robbery and shooting incident yesterday has claimed the life of an adult male.
According to police reports, shortly before 6:00 p.m. two armed males entered a business establishment on First Street, Coconut Grove, held the employees at bay and robbed the store of an undetermined amount of cash. While fleeing the establishment, one of the gunmen shot a male customer who was entering at the same time. Paramedics responded to the scene and transported the victim to hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
This latest incident pushes the murder count to 85 so far for the year.
