"Would-be robbery spree ends with 2 dead, 2
companions charged in Dania Beach"

Gregory Calixte, 19, of Pembroke Park, his brother, Willems Calixte, 20, Charles
Johnson, 17, of Miramar, and a 20-year-old man from Miami, went to Boomers in
Dania Beach late Monday.
Around midnight, they left the amusement park
and decided to rob people, said BSO spokesman Jim Leljedal. As the group rode
together in the same car, they headed to Southwest Seventh Avenue, where they
saw two men standing in the road.
The Miami man, wearing a face mask and carrying a gun, got out of the car and
approached the ment in the street. One of the men raised his hands in the air
while the other pulled out a gun, fired, and killed the masked man and Gregory
Calixte, Leljedal said.
The shooter and his companion fled, while Willems Calixte and Johnson slid
Gregory Calixte out of the driver's seat of the car, and drove to Memorial
Hospital in Hollywood, where he was pronounced dead. The masked man was left
lying in the street, Leljedal said.
The masked victim has not been identified until his family members are notified.
Willems Calixte and Johnson are charged with murder because their criminal
actions led to their companions' deaths. Detectives are still looking for the
would-be robbery victims to get their side of the story.
