Shocking news out of Maryland, where a Filipino restaurant at a mall became part of a bloody crime scene on Tuesday, January 10.
17-year old Angelo Lamont Jackson was charged Wednesday with two counts of first degree murder — after he allegedly stabbed two men with a knife at the restaurant Lumpia, Pansit, ATBP at Westfield Wheaton Mall.
The victims — Angel Alfredo Gomez Pineda and Kevin Siloe Moya Cruz — reportedly tried to defend themselves with bamboo sticks they pulled out from a display at the mall restaurant.
Police are still trying to determine if the suspect and the victims knew one another before they engaged in a fight at the mall.
The victims were taken to hospitals, where they died. The suspect fled the scene, but was later arrested at his residence.
