A Washington man shot his way out of a robbery last week in the city of Auburn in the Seattle-Tacoma area.
The police are still withholding the names of both men involved. Officers responding to the shooting found two men, one dead, the other shot in the arm.
The man shot and killed the armed robber after being shot himself. He was leaving a business when the armed man confronted him.
Police pronounced the suspected robber dead at the scene.
“The victim was leaving a local business when the suspect approached him with a gun and tried to rob him. The victim, who also had a gun, exchanged gunfire with the suspect. The suspect was DOA,” the Auburn Police Department said on social media.
“We will continue to update you as we are still in the early stages of our investigation.”
