Robbery suspect shot dead by intended victim at ATM
ORLANDO, Fla. (11/20/12)--A suspected robber was shot dead Friday by his intended victim at a drive-through ATM  at the Fern Park, Fla., branch of Orlando, Fla.-based Fairwinds CU.

Justin Slivinski, 24, was shot to death when he and a 19-year-old accomplice, Austin Lee Harvey, allegedly brandished knives and tried to rob a man in a truck at the ATM drive-through lane of the $1.68 billion asset credit union, the Seminole County Sheriff's Department said (Orlando Sentinel Nov. 18). 

When Slivinski and Harvey allegedly showed their knives, the intended victim pulled out a handgun and fired, hitting Slivinski twice, said the Sheriff's Department. Slivinski was taken to a local hospital where he died, the newspaper said.

Harvey fled on foot, but a tipster led authorities to him. He was arrested Saturday afternoon and charged with attempted armed robbery and murder charges, the paper said. The member who fired the shots will not be charged, said the sheriff's department.
