7-11 Robber Fatally Shot by Police

A St. Petersburg police officer shot an armed-robbery-in-progress suspect.

Police shot and killed an armed robber outside a 7-11 store, St. Petersburg police report.

Lamont Burgess, 36, was fatally shot at about 1 a.m. Tuesday. A second suspect, 20-year-old Ebony C. Oliver was arrested.

The two suspects had just robbed the convenience store of cash and had run outside, behind the store, according to the Associated Press.

Detectives believe that Burgess and Lamont may have been staying at a local
motel together prior to the robbery. Detectives are still attempting to
identify that location.

Police say that Oliver will be charged with one count of felony murder and one count of armed robbery.

along with the Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney's Office.
