Cleveland Taco Bell employees shoot and kill an armed thief


Police say three Cleveland employees of Taco Bell opened fire on two armed robbers, killing one of them.

Police said two masked robbers entered the restaurant and ordered three employees to lie on the floor. Police say three other employees took out their pistols, opened fire, and shot one of the suspects six times. The other suspect fled.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examination Bureau said Thursday that the dead man was 24-year-old DiCarlo Jackson.

Investigators say Jackson found him with a loaded pistol in his hand. He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

No one has been arrested. The staff that opened fire are said to be two 19-year-old men and a 23-year-old man.

A spokeswoman for Taco Bell said the company was “shocked” by the shooting and was providing advice to employees.
