SANFORD — New surveillance video from a Seminole County Internet cafe shows terrified customers scattering as a group of armed men rushed inside, waving guns in the air.

Around 30 people were inside the Allied Veterans Cafe early Tuesday morning, when the the attempted robbery and shootout happened.

The video showed some customers dive under tables as the gunmen burst into the cafe.

A security guard stopped the would-be robbers, returning fire after one gunman shot at him.

That suspect, Gary Bryant, was fatally wounded. No one else inside the cafe was hurt.

Deputies said the other two suspects drove off with Bryant, and dumped him outside a hotel in Orange County. Bryant later died at the hospital.

The other two suspects remain on the run, and are considered armed and dangerous. Deputies said they are looking for two dark-skinned men in their early 20s.
