Robbery suspect killed in Miami Beach

Police in Miami Beach say they killed a razor-wielding man suspected in a bank robbery early Saturday.

Kathleen Prieto of the Miami Beach Police Department said in an email that police responded to a 911 call from a Bank of America branch. The caller said a suspect was armed with a bomb and had passed a note to the teller.

Prieto said police arrived and found the suspect inside a barber shop. He then exited the shop with a "straight edge razor in his hand." Shots were fired and the suspect was killed.

A video of a shooting on Miami Beach was posted on Instagram and elsewhere on social media. In the video, a shirtless man is seen briefly confronting what appeared to be at least three police officers outside a shopping center. The man is shot and falls to the ground.

Mayor Philip Levine called the shooting "a horrible, isolated incident." - AP

Supplies launched

A U.S. shipment of much-needed groceries and other astronaut supplies rocketed toward the International Space Station for the first time in months Sunday, reigniting NASA's commercial delivery service. If the Orbital ATK capsule arrives at the space station Wednesday as planned, it will represent the first U.S. delivery since spring. The weather cooperated after three days of high wind and clouds that kept the Atlas V rocket on the ground. - AP


Vets' remains buried

The cremated remains of 14 war veterans and the spouses of seven others were laid to rest years after their deaths. Thanks to the Missing in America Project, they were remembered Saturday before burial at South Florida National Cemetery. The nonprofit searches for unclaimed military remains and verifies service with the National Cemetery Administration. Those buried Saturday represented both World Wars and the Korean and Vietnam Wars. - AP
