    Police shoot, kill Titusville robbery suspect

    An armed man who held up a bank and attempted to get away with cash was shot and killed by Titusville police following a confrontation near the robbery site.

    The shooting took place around 10:50 a.m. in the middle of Barna Avenue, about a block-and-a-half to the north of the Bank of America branch on Harrison Street and near several shopping plazas. The suspect, who police identified as 35-year-old Jesse Daniel Joynt of Titusville, was shot in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

    The unidentified officer, bank tellers or other patrons were not injured.

    “We had officers respond to a report of an armed robbery in progress. Shots were fired by the officer,” said Deputy Chief Todd Hutchinson of the Titusville Police Department.

    The Titusville officer involved in Wednesday's shooting was placed on administrative leave with pay, which is routine. The police agency also asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to conduct an investigation into the shooting and working to determine if the gunman attempted to aim his weapon at the approaching officer.
