1 killed, 1 charged in botched robbery
« on: November 18, 2012, 09:46:40 PM »
One suspected robber is dead and his 19-year-old accused accomplice is facing charges after a man they tried to rob Friday outside a bank in Seminole County pulled out a gun and opened fire in self-defense, authorities said.

Justin Slivinski, 24, of Oviedo was shot to death late Friday night when, deputies say, he and accomplice Austin Lee Harvey of Altamonte Springs tried to rob a man at a Fern Park drive-through ATM.

Deputies say Slivinski and Harvey were both armed with knives when they approached the victim's truck at about 10:20 p.m. at the Fairwinds Credit Union on Fernwood Boulevard between U.S. Highway 17-92 and Oxford Road.

When they brandished knives, the victim pulled out his handgun and fired...Both Harvey and Slivinski have criminal histories.  Harvey has been arrested four times this year alone.

I know the area quite well. Just a stone's throw from where Zimmerman was attacked.
