A homeowner shot and killed an armed robber with the suspect's own gun in Pompano Beach early Tuesday, officials said. Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Dani Moschella spoke about the case, as did Brian Greene, Justin Polnac and Danyiel Louis.
The armed robbery suspect who was shot and killed with his own gun after a struggle with his intended victim in Pompano Beach had a lengthy and violent criminal past, authorities said Wednesday.
Osner Louis, 29, died following the deadly encounter with a resident at the Conch Key Villas at 421 Northeast 1st Street Tuesday morning, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.
The resident told detectives he had just arrived home around 5:15 a.m. when he encountered Louis near his garage. The two struggled and the gun fired, killing Louis.
Authorities believe Louis was there to rob the resident.
Detectives are still looking for a dark-colored car witnesses said they saw leaving the scene. The car is described as a black, newer model Nissan, Mazda or Acura.
Anyone with information is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
