Miami Gardens Fla An armored truck guard was fatally shot Sunday afternoon as he made a scheduled stop at the Calder Casino and Race Course in Miami Gardens.
The Brinks guard was apparently shot as he walked out of the casino about 5 p.m., WFOR-Ch. 4 reported.
The FBI released a photograph late Sunday of a car believed to have been involved in the robbery. A gray sedan was found in the parking lot of the Walmart store at 19501 NW 27th Ave., where police believe the suspects spotted the armored truck. They then stole a pick-up truck from the parking lot and followed the Brinks vehicle to Calder, police said.
Surveillance video from the track shows a man walking toward the casino. After the robbery, the man jumped into the pickup truck, which police found later at El Palacio Sports Hotel, at the corner of 27th Avenue and County Line Road. Investigators said they believed three people were involved in the robbery.
The guard was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center where he died. Police did not say whether the robbers got away with any money from the casino at 21001 NW 27th Ave.
Investigators asked anyone with information about the vehicle or the robbery to call the FBI at 305-944-9101.

TORONTO, Ont. – A 27-year-old man has been charged with aggravated assault after police allege he stabbed a suspected burglar inside his girlfriend’s west-end home.
The Toronto Sun reports that the intruder, who is recovering from the stabbing in hospital, had not been charged with any offense on Sunday. A police sergeant told The Sun that the investigation is still ongoing, however.
The stabbing allegedly occurred around 2 a.m. when a man and his girlfriend returned to the woman’s home in the Keele Street and Lawrence Avenue West area.
After becoming suspicious that someone may have broken in, The Sun reports the couple searched the house and located an intruder. An altercation ensued and the alleged intruder was stabbed multiple times before fleeing the home.
It wasn’t until two hours later that a 33-year-old man called police from an apartment on Gulliver Road to report he had been stabbed.
He was eventually taken to hospital for surgery, and he is recovering now.

After the recent release of Stats Canada’s crime statistics, it looks like crime in Canada is decreasing. However, the idea that many Canadians are not reporting crimes to police has recently been in the news a great deal.
It started when Treasury Board President Stockwell Day stated that “People simply aren’t reporting the same way they used to.”
“We’re very concerned . . . about the increase in the amount of unreported crimes that surveys clearly show are happening,” said Day.
From the Toronto Star:
“The facial-recognition software Toronto police will use to track down suspects in its G20 summit investigation is an off-the-shelf tool that can sort through multiple databases very quickly.
The Canadian Bankers Association bought and installed the software because ‘the banks and the CBA have investigative functions, too. We investigate crimes against banks,’ spokeswoman Maura Drew-Lytle said Thursday.
Their source is mostly ‘photos from security cameras’ in banks, she said. Once the banks compile their information, ‘we turn it over to the police.’
In the G20 investigation, the CBA and its technicians trained in using facial-recognition software will help police try to match the pictures they have from images on many different databases, including those from Canada Border Services Agency.”
Security cameras have long been used to identify criminals.
When a crime takes place, one of the first thing police officers do is try an obtain as much security camera footage as they can. Having the actions of a criminal recorded on video presents a strong case. That’s why video surveillance cameras are such effective deterrents to crime.
As technology improves, the ability to correctly identify criminals grows.
