JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man was shot and killed in an attempted robbery at an Avondale restaurant Monday morning -- and his co-worker heard the whole thing.
"I was sitting there just doing my job and next thing I know I hear some guy telling my partner to give him all his money," said Tyler Lumley.
Lumley works for his dad's company, Ed Lumley's Exhaust Cleaning Service. Police are still withholding the identity of the victim, but Lumley said his partner was 53-year-old Robert Sutton.
They were cleaning equipment at Mojo No. 4 BBQ Restaurant on St. Johns Avenue around 3 a.m. when someone tried to rob his partner.
"Next thing I know, I hear a gun shot and my buddy hits the ground," said Lumley.
Lumley said Sutton was outside pressure washing filters, but he was inside. When he heard the commotion he got under a countertop for what felt like 30 minutes.
