Miami Beach police shot and killed a man on Alton Road Saturday after authorities say he tried to rob a bank, fled to a nearby barbershop and then confronted cops with a straight edge razor — a grizzly scene that unfolded before bystanders, who quickly posted video of the deadly encounter on social media.

In the video, a bald, shirtless man wearing blue jeans and holding a straight razor in his left hand takes a step toward two Miami Beach police officers, who are aiming their weapons at him. No verbal exchanges can be heard on the video, which appeared to be shot from across the street.
