Armed robbery and drug deal gone bad in Florida Walmart parking lot turns into car chase with police

Occurred April 1, 2013.

Three suspects were engaged in a drug deal in a Walmart parking lot in Sunrise, Florida, when the deal went bad.  Using guns, they committed an armed robbery, then fled.  Police got involved and chased the suspects, who bailed out after ramming a police car.  They have since been apprehended.

From an article:
It started around 4 p.m. when a drug transaction turned into an armed robbery in the parking lot of a Walmart at 3603 N. University Drive in Sunrise, Sgt. Rodney Hailey said. 
Undercover officers in several unmarked patrol cars moved in to make the arrests but the suspects' car rammed a police car and sped away. That officer suffered minor injuries and was treated at Florida Medical Center, Hailey said. 
"The other [officers] continued to chase them into the city of Lauderhill and ultimately the [suspect] vehicle crashed," he said. "We caught one person in the car and two others fled east into the neighborhood." 
A perimeter was set up around the apartment complex at 2750 Northwest 56th Avenue. A SWAT team persuaded the remaining two suspects to surrender about two hours later, Hailey said. 
"The suspects were armed with guns," he said, but no shots were fired during the chase and search.
Walmart.  Save money.  Die faster.

UPDATE (4/8/13):  The three suspects have been identified as Anthony Lawson, 37, of Boca Raton, Sean Bryant, 20, and Marco Frankie, 19,
