By Allison Klein

Misael Abdias Flores was at his local wings and pizza restaurant in Glen Burnie Friday night grabbing a bite to eat when four men came in wearing masks, weilding guns and announced a robbery.

Flores who was standing next to a female employee, told them to leave. One of the men then fatally shot him.

All of the masked men then ran out of the restaurant.

Anne Arundel police have arrested two teens in connection with the shooting, which happened about 9 p.m. in the 7600 block of Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard.

Vincent Ethan Bunner, 17, of the 100 block of Dunlap Road in Pasadena, was charged with first degree murder and Shawn Anthony Johnson, 18, of the 7800 block of Windbourne Drive in Glen Burnie, was charged with first degree murder, felony murder, armed robbery and several other related handgun charges.

The investigation is still active, and police ask anyone with information about the crime to call Detective Norval Cooper at 410-222-3453.

A different needle would be a better choice.

Fry them in an electric chair and dunp their bodies in a field for the vultures to pick.

This is horrible and I'm not blaming the victim. When in a robbery situation it is best to let the robbers get what they came for and wait for them to leave. I've been roobed at gunpoint 3 times-once in Bethesda, once in Siver Spring, and once in DC. All 3 times I did not resist and LIVED. The police told me I did the right thing. Believe me, the police would rather have all the victims alive and unhurt (terrified is still functioning) so that they can get your description of the culprit(s) Any of us who lived in this whole area of the mid-atlantic during the crack epidemic of the 80's and the crack wars of the early 90's can tell you to just "be cool." You are not going to lose your pride or any respect by being smart. I'm definately not advicating a victim mentality, but unless you can stop a bullet with your teeth or bare hands-stay safe.

Forced sterilazation, sure... but only if followed by hanging by the neck until dead.

Death by injection is much, much too easy for these vermin, and I would not want to WASTE the energy it would take electrocute this trash.

stopthemadness - if you have been robbed at gunpoint three times, you really need to review your habits. Most people go through life without being robbed at gunpoint at all, so three times means that there is something about you that just screams "Rob Me!"

FORCED STERILIZATION ON THE MALES WILL NOT WORK. WE NEED A CASH REWARD SYSTEM TO ENCOURAGE THE YOUNG FEMALES TO HAVE THEIR TUBES TIED BEFORE BREEDING.

Put them in a jail cell, naked, with no floor and a bunch of horny-toed campers WAITING BELOW. That'll teach 'em...

Their moms will say that their sons are good boys and are innocent.

Check it out, one of them looks like a young Marion Barry

Right thing for you. Right thing for the criminals (that's exactly what they want). Wrong thing for everyone else they are likely to victimize down the road. You reward a behavior, you will get more of the same. This is the exact attitude that the 9/11 terrorists took advantage of to gain control of 4 complex aircraft where they were outnumbered 10:1 using a set of BOX CUTTERS! It is the attitude that every day criminals use to victimize us on a daily basis. You want to stop this sort of thing - giving the bad guys what they want is the exact OPPOSITE of what we should be doing.

The victim here was a true hero. He fell in the war on terror here at home. He did the right thing. I'm dreadfully sorry over that. But if more people acted as he had, fewer people would eventually need too. Think about that.

Sentence them to life w/o the possibility of parole to the largest rock pile you can find. Then, pay them what a laborer would be paid, say, $20.00 per hour. On pay day, let them look at the paycheck, then sign it over to the victim's family. Make them work their butts off for nothing for the rest of their lives and then they will have a better value for life and appreciate going out and getting a job for themselves.

I thought they did not release the names of arrested juveniles?

They don't, but he has been charged as an adult. The recent Supreme Court case makes it unlikely he is fried.

It sure would have been great if business owners, managers and patrons could get concealed carry permits in Maryland. How much better would it have been if these two thugs were shot in the back of the head as they were fleeing with the loot; instead of an innocent person dying. Now we get to clothe, feed, educate and shelter these two while they burn up our money in legal wranglings for the next 30 years. Thanks Govenor O'Malley; thanks Senator Mikulski; you really helped by keeping guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens!

if the nanny state isn't going to allow Marylanders the chance to defend themselves, the least they can do is string these "upstanding citizens" up by the heels and let the vultures pick at their flesh.

Why is that when the suspects are black the undoubtedly white posters are so much more hateful and vicious in their comments and oh so willing to suggest death or some other barbaric atrocity? However, when the suspects are white the comments are oh so low key and analytical. Given we live in this post racial America surely it's not due to race.

As a Floridian who lives under Stand Your Ground and Shall Issue Concealed Carry rules, I understand the assumption that the robbers were operating under - in the culture of Maryland, meeting armed law-abiding citizens is essentially a non-occurance for law breakers. The criminals could act as they were only people with deadly weapons, and were in complete control of the situation.

In Florida, the culture is different. I can not tell you exactly what I would have done in a local wings and pizza restaurant here on a night like that, but I know of one option I have down here that Marylanders do not have up there.

I could have pulled my concealed pistole, and because I (1) was in a place where I had a legal right to be, (2) was meeting force with equal (deadly) force to (3) acting to stop an immediate forceable felony (robbery), I would have a different option - stopping the threat.

Given the tactical situation, I could (and if possible would) have shot every one of the robbers who had a weapon dead. I would have said nothing - my Beretta would have done all the talking.

Criminals down here know the rules here too.
