NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — New Haven police say a clerk shot and killed a man who was trying to rob his store, not long after his brother reported an armed robbery in a different store.

Police went to the Ave. Mini Mart around 11:45 p.m. Tuesday after the owner reported a man with a rifle tried to rob him. While they were there, police got a call from the owner’s brother at their other store. He reported a man had tried to rob him and that he had shot him.

Officers went to Nino’s Market and found the suspect shot in the chest.

The suspect was pronounced dead at Yale-New Haven Hospital. His name hasn’t been released.

Police said they recovered the weapon used in the robbery.

No charges have been filed in the shooting.
