    An armed robber shot dead by police would have chosen to die rather than go back to jail, his friends have said.

    Michael Fitzpatrick, known by the nickname Killer Mick, was wanted by police for a string of armed robberies.

    He had already spent 14 years in jail after plotting the murder of a millionaire’s wife.

    Sussex Police had been searching Kemp Town for Fitzpatrick for several hours when they found him in Rock Place at 1pm on Thursday.

    The 49-year-old is believed to have pulled out a handgun before armed plain clothed officers fired twice.

    For full report and pictures see today's Argus.

    Only two shots were fired. I have to say this is incredibly impressive. Police in the States are trained to empty their weapons. Kudos to the Sussex armed response teams for having such a high standard of training and discipline.

    Well done to Sussex Police. Better than the tax payer having to keep the vermin in jail. Then of course he may have even got the right to vote in the future!

    Its disturbing to see so many pro-criminal comments on the argus website. We need an expansion of law enforcement in this country not cuts.

    Thankyou Sussex Police - one less piece of dirt off the streets. I hope the police in question who had to make the difficult decision to shoot the man in question are aware of how much their hard work is appreciated.

    So you must have known he was in prison for 14 years for plotting a murder? And you cant believe what your reading?!


    I wrote I knew him, I was his colleage for about 2 years in 2005-2006, so I don't understand how he could spent 14years in jail for plotting a murder

    Or, OP, you could just have posted a link

    so in short?

    Where does it say anything about him fraudulantly claiming benefits? Seems he was making enough doing armed robberies.

    With a name like Killer Mick it sounds like they've done everyone a favour. lol

    So what, everyone who commits a crime should be killed? Capital punishment is abhorrent

    i knew fitz from way back in 70s and am fully aware of what he was like and no way am going to stick up for him or condone the things he done . But remember some people dont get the best start in life and he was one of them . he was bad but he wasnt born that way and the ones responsible for helping him on this path and are still around should hang their heads in shame

    Geez for a second I thought it was a Mysterious guy at a car boot sale who gives big black bags of presents to a kid he does not know & keeps taken the family out for free meals....Ahhhhhh never mind.
