From the Miami Herald.

A pair of would-be robbers were shot and killed by their victims in separate incidents in Hollywood and North Miami-Dade.

In Hollywood, a store clerk shot and killed one of two hooded robbers who broke into the store at an Exxon gas station at 5190 S. State Road 7 on Monday just before midnight. One of the attackers fired several times at the clerk, and the clerk returned fire, killing the gunman, said Sgt. Pablo Vanegas of the Hollywood Police Department.

“There were lots of rounds shot,” Vanegas said. “The clerk was a real cool cat.”

The second robber took off in a car, but police arrested him a few blocks away, Vanegas said.

Police have not yet released the names of the clerk or the dead attacker.

The other robber has been identified as 19-year-old Joshua Stewart. He faces charges of burglary and felony murder for his partner’s death, Vanegas said.

In North Miami-Dade, one man was killed after he and another man apparently broke into an occupied home at 850 NE 209th Ter. just after 11 p.m. Monday, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department. The 22-year-old intruder was killed after exchanging gunfire with a man inside the house.

The second intruder escaped, police said.

Police have not identified the man who was killed, or the 19-year-old who shot him.

Miami-Dade police are also investigating an unrelated drive-by shooting that killed a man on Northeast 90th Street near Northeast Second Avenue in El Portal around 4:30 p.m. Monday afternoon. Police have not released the name of the 27-year-old shooting victim.

“Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American… [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.” -The Pennsylvanian (Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.)
