Taco Bell employees took matters into their own hands early Wednesday morning when two armed and masked thieves entered their west side restaurant location.

While the robbers ordered three employees to get on the ground, Cleveland police say three other employees grabbed their own handguns and began to fire at the robbers.

One suspect was shot six times by the Taco Bell employees and was later pronounced dead. By the time police were called to the scene at 2:45 a.m., the other suspect had escaped.

The man killed was 24-year-old De'Carlo Jackson, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office reported today.

So far no one, including the employees, has been arrested in this case.

The fast food company is offering counseling for its workers.
