All Aboard? Armed Thief Killed by Clients at Barbecue Stand

At about 1:30 this afternoon at a barbecue stand at Benemérito de las Américas and Plutarco Elías Calles, four armed men assaulted the establishment, forcing the owner and clients at gunpoint to empty their pockets. After the assault three of the men got into a vehicle, which sped off before the fourth man was able to climb aboard. Clients and, apparently, passersby, attacked the man left behind, beating him with fists and, some say, knives, and there is one report he may have been shot with his own pistol. Someone called 066 (equivalent to 911) to attend to the man but by the time paramedics arrived the thief was dead.
