Three men were recently arrested following a shootout outside a restaurant in Phoenix. The incident stemmed from an armed robbery that took place at a nearby strip club where the men allegedly stole proceeds from the business.
During the subsequent shootout after the holdup, both a Phoenix police officer and a volunteer sheriff’s posse member were wounded. The three suspects were taken into custody without injuries.
All three men have entered pleas of not guilty to charges of armed robbery and other related charges.
Armed robbery is the taking of property from another by threat or force with the aid of a dangerous weapon or instrument. There are many items that can be classified as a weapon or dangerous instrument. In Arizona, prosecutors will work hard to show the involvement of a deadly weapon to bolster their case.
