DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A clerk at a Delray Beach convenience
store fatally shot an armed robber.

Police say the apparent robber, who was later found to be
carrying no identification, entered the Community Food Market armed
with a handgun Saturday night. When one of the clerks hid behind
the counter, the robber reportedly shot at him. The other clerk
then took and weapon and fired at the robber.

The robber left the store, and the clerks called authorities.
Police found the suspect laying face down, holding a handgun,
several blocks away. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he
was pronounced dead from a gunshot wound.

Less than an hour earlier, a clerk and a customer were fatally
shot at a West Palm Beach convenience store. Authorities are still
searching for two suspects in that case.
