An armed robbery turned into a deadly police chase in Eilat early on Sunday, resulting in the shooting death of one suspect.

The incident began when two masked gunmen entered the Caza De Brazil restaurant in the Red Sea city, waving firearms and demanding cash from employees. Two police arrived within minutes of the robbery, but the gunmen were able to force them to handover their weapons at gunpoint.
