MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) - An employee shot and killed a masked gunman as he attempted to rob a Miramar restaurant.

Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues tells media outlets the employee of Captain Max Seafood restaurant used his own weapon to stop the attempted robbery Wednesday.

Rues says the suspect, who was wearing a ski mask and gloves, walked into the restaurant and brandished a gun. After an exchange of words, the employee fired several shots and killed the suspect.

Rues says no one else was injured. She cautioned people against taking matters into their own hands.

No further details have been provided. The investigation is ongoing.
