When you’re a criminal, ultimately you will turn on everyone and anyone just to save yourself.
That could not be more true than in this case of modern-day Bonnie and Clyde where this boyfriend ultimately turns on his girl to save himself.
A suspect in a series of robberies and kidnappings spanning four states used his girlfriend as a human shield during an early-morning standoff with Florida deputies before he was shot dead while trying to break into a house, officials revealed.
Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan said during a press conference Friday that Blake Fitzgerald died at the scene in Santa Rosa County and his accomplice, Brittany Nicole Harper, was taken to a local hospital suffering from gunshot wounds.
The Missouri couple, dubbed ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ in the media, were cornered by law enforcement officials following a high-speed chase prompted by a shoe store robbery.
In online video posted by Pensacola, Florida, station WEAR-TV, a volley of gunshots can be heard amid flashing police lights on a rural road in Milton, Florida.
Honestly, these two got whatever was coming to them. You can’t be a fugitive forever.
Luckily, it looks like there is a Lifetime movie in this story-line of a couple who had to choose what exactly they were living for in the end.
