boulevard-burger.jpgAn employee at Boulevard Burger in Castro Valley was facing the end of a .357 revolver during an armed robbery Friday night when some passing police officers came on the scene. The officers had been notified, perhaps by another employee in the back of the business, of a robbery in progress while they were conducting a traffic stop nearby, and arrived at the restaurant in time to see the crook with his weapon raised. The employee then bravely grabbed the suspect's arm, causing the gun to go off and give him a powder burn, after which one of the officers shot and killed the suspect. Crazy stuff! [CBS]
