Robbery suspect killed in shootout outside Benihana

One man was killed and another was wounded after a robbery and shootout outside a popular North Dallas restaurant.

Police said just after 10 p.m. Sunday two men tried to rob two people as they were leaving Benihana on Banner Drive.

Witnesses said one of the suspects asked to borrow a lighter. He then pulled a mask over his head and pulled out a gun.

But one of the victims had a gun of his own in his vehicle. He grabbed it and exchanged fire with the suspect.

The 28-year-old suspect was killed. The victim was shot, but his injuries are not life threatening, police said.

Police are now searching for the second suspect, who ran off wearing a mask.
