Police say three employees of a Cleveland Taco Bell opened fire on two armed robbers, killing one. Two masked robbers reportedly entered the restaurant early Wednesday and ordered three workers to lie on the floor. Three other employees then pulled out handguns and opened fire, shooting one of the suspects six times, police say; the other suspect ran off. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office says the man killed was 24-year-old De'Carlo Jackson, the AP reports. Investigators say Jackson was found with a loaded gun in his hand. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead. No one has been arrested. The employees who opened fire are said to be two 19-year-old men and a 23-year-old man. (More Taco Bell stories.)
