Last week, police in Scottsdale, Arizona, arrested Carlos Federico Herrera, 23, in connection to the killing of Joseph Doyle in June, according to AZ Family.

Around 7:15 a.m., Herrera robbed the hamburger eatery, according to the report. He went to the store while it was closed and walked into an office where an employee was working.

Herrera pointed the gun at the worker and said, “I have one in the chamber for you,” according to AZ Family. Herrera got a bag of money and fled.


On June 12, Herrera went back to the same Red Robin and demanded money. This time an employee, Doyle, took the gun.

During the struggle, a round was fired, and Doyle was killed, AZ Family reported.

After his arrest, Herrera allegedly told police he robbed the same restaurant because it “was so easy.”

Police charged Herrera with first-degree murder, first-degree burglary and armed robbery with a deadly weapon. He was booked into jail, where bail was set at $1 million.
