INDIANAPOLIS: Robbery Hostage Killed After Offering Himself
Nov. 19, 1985
A fast-food restaurant manager was killed Sunday after he talked two intruders into taking him as a hostage in place of one of his colleagues. The police said today that the death of the manager, Dewayne M. Bible, might have resulted from his insistence on turning off a freezer where five women were held at a McDonald's restaurant. The gunmen entered the restaurant at 8 A.M., said Sgt. Fred L. Jackson of the Marion County Sheriff's Office. He said the men ordered coffee and waited for three customers to leave before announcing a holdup. The gunmen robbed the employees and escaped with an undisclosed amount of money from several cash drawers, Sergeant Jackson said. The women said they had been locked inside a basement freezer and later managed to free themselves.

The manager and the cook of a fast-food restaurant were shot and killed during a robbery Saturday night in Rockville Centre, L.I., the Nassau County police said. The bodies of the two men, lying prone behind the counter of a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant at 547 Merrick Road, were found by a woman who went there at 11:15 P.M. to buy chicken, Detective Sgt. William Cox of the Nassau police homicide squad said. The 31-year-old manager, Mohammed Jawaharlall of Brentwood, L.I., and the cook, who still had not been identified yesterday, were lying face down and appeared to have been shot several times at close range, the police said. Sergeant Cox said that there appeared to have been no struggle and that an unidentified amount of cash had been taken from the register. "He shot them in cold blood for no apparent reason," he said. Detectives yesterday did not know how many men had entered the store. The detectives were looking for customers who entered the store between 9 and 11 P.M. and were investigating other fast-food robberies that had occurred within the last two months in the nearby towns, Sergeant Cox said.
