200323871-001.jpgMIAMI, FL—FBI agents arrested five people following a Miami Gardens robbery that ended with the death of a 26-year-old Brink’s armored truck guard. According to information provided by the Miami Herald, the robbery and subsequent fatal shooting occurred at the Calder Casino and Race Course on August 21.

Reports indicated 26-year-old Hollywood resident Uri Steven Ammar, as well as 25-year-old Vladimir Louissant, 26-year-old Victoria Barkley, 23-year-old Byron Kyler and 26-year-old Reginald Mitchell, whom all reside in Miami Gardens, face unspecified criminal charges in connection with the fatal Miami-Dade shooting. Officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced the arrests on Aug. 22.
At approximately 5 p.m. on Aug. 21, one of the named offenders sat on a bench outside the Miami Gardens casino, awaiting the return of a Brink’s armored car courier. When Brink’s employee Alvaro Lopez Ramos did indeed return to the armored truck with a bag of money, gunfire erupted.

While the gunman subsequently fled the scene, Ramos suffered severe gunshot wounds, which eventually proved fatal. Although details concerning the violent armored truck robbery and fatal shootout remained limited, reports noted that several Brink’s armored cars have been robbed over the past few years. The Miami-Dade robbery/murder case is underway.
