Man Shoots at Cops, Cops Shoot at Man. Man Now Dead

A Phoenix robbery suspect is dead after shooting it out with police after holding up a 7-11.

According to the Phoenix Police Department, officers responded to a robbery in progress at the convenience store near 48th Street and McDowell Road about 2 a.m.

When officers arrived on the scene, the suspect ran out of the store and fired at the cops.

Bad move.

The officers returned fire as the suspect fled in a vehicle.

The vehicle, police say, was found stopped seven blocks away at 38th Street and McDowell. Inside: one dead suspect.

Police say the dead suspect was probably a passenger in the vehicle, not the driver.

No officers were hurt in the shootout.
