In a shocking video, a Miami Beach police officer shot and killed a man who allegedly tried to rob a local bank earlier this morning.

The video was uploaded to Instagram by Marcellus Johnson, an event photographer.

It was later republished by the Miami New Times which reported that the man had held up a Bank of America according to Miami Beach police.

The man was apparently armed with a straight razor that he took from a barbershop before he was killed.

From the Miami New Times

“The confrontation started about 10:30 this morning when a hold-up alarm at the 1414 Alton Road Bank of America alerted police; the suspect said he was armed with a bomb, the teller told police.”
