Four Arrested in Casino Murder of Armored Truck Guard

Vladimir Louissant, 25; Victoria Barkley, 26; Byron Kyler, 23; and Reginald Mitchell, 26, have been swiftly arrested after the murder of a Brinks armored truck guard yesterday afternoon outside the Calder Casino in Miami Gardens. The four suspects had fled the scene but were captured by the FBI's South Florida Violent Crimes Task Force.

The incident took place Sunday night when the group stole a truck from a nearby Walmart. The thieves then traveled to Calder, where one member of the group waited on a bench for the guard.

While the guard was loading money from the casino into the truck, the man confronted him.

"Just before 5, a suspect gets out of the truck and goes to a bench and sits there. He waits until the armored-car guard carrying some money leaves Calder, he rushes him, and at that time, shots were fired," FBI spokesman Michael Leverock told NBC Miami.

The group then drove off in the stolen truck before ditching it at the nearby El Palacio Hotel and taking off on foot.

All four suspects are expected to appear in court today.
