Taco Bell Thief Demands Victim Drop Pants, Victim Kills Him

On Tuesday, an armed man approached a patron in a Taco Bell parking lot, demanded he drop his pants, and was subsequently shot and killed.

The attempted armed robbery took place in Pompano Beach, Florida.

According to CBS 4, it was approximately 6 pm when “21-year-old Rontavis Holton confronted [37-year-old] Ronald Farmer” in a Taco Bell parking lot. Holton — who was “wearing a ski mask and sunglasses” — allegedly pulled a gun on Farmer and “told [him] to pull down his pants.”

Farmer pulled his own gun and shot Holton in self-defense.

The AP reports that Farmer then ran inside the Taco Bell “seeking help.” Emergency personnel were alerted and upon arriving, they transported Holton to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A woman who claims to be Farmer’s sister said the thief wanted to take her brother’s car. A Broward County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman confirmed that robbery was indeed the motive.
