Victim kills one in Lauderdale Lakes armed robbery and second robber faces murder charge, detectives say

One man is dead and another is facing a murder charge following an armed robbery where a victim opened fire on the pair, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.

Litanis Alcira, 41, of Margate, and another man robbed two people in the 3900 block of Northwest 34th Way in Lauderdale Lakes about 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 20, investigators said.

One of the victims had a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Detectives said he was in fear for his life when he drew his gun and fired, wounding one of the robbery suspects.

Alcira drove the wounded accomplice a couple miles south to the South Lakes Shopping Plaza at 3710 W. Oakland Park Blvd., east of U.S. 441. He called 911 and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue took the wounded man to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, investigators said.

Would-be robber fatally shot by customer at Northeast Philadelphia Wingstop, police say

By TaRhonda Thomas
A man who stopped for late-night takeout in a Northeast Philadelphia eatery found himself in the middle of a robbery. Police said he fired the fatal shot that stopped the crime.

It happened at around 10:30 Sunday night at the Wingstop in the 2100 block Cottman Avenue.

Police said the suspect, a 53-year-old man, came in wearing a mask and gloves.

“(He) walked in, went behind the counter, announced a robbery and asked for all the money,” said Philadelphia Police Department Chief Inspector Scott Small.

Before the three employees who were inside could comply with his demands, a customer walked in talking on his cell phone.

    “…and 2 out of 3’s not bad…” Flur-ruh-duh man…again! “Coward” County…AGAIN! Leastways the Sheriff’s Fire/Rescue Group does their job and got the trash to the pronouncing place. Wonder if they made the arrest too? Hopefully, the getaway driver, #2 perp, will catch a nice case of “bruised taint” while at the Gray Bar Hotel.

    Silly Philly man winged his way straight to Hell. He didn’t have a wing or a prayer when the Armed Citizen showed up. Citizen had NO intention of just winging the perp.

    All Hail the designs of the Saintly John Moses Browning (Howitzer be his name) ALL HAIL! “The medicine gun for lions.” Heh heh
