RENO, Nev. (AP) — A suspect died after a shootout with police near a Reno casino after officers said he shot and wounded a shopper during a robbery of a CVS Pharmacy minutes before.

Washoe County sheriff's spokesman Bob Harmon says the male suspect died Sunday night at a Reno hospital and the male shopper was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Their names have not been released.

Investigators say the suspect fled in a vehicle after the Saturday evening robbery at CVS, and shots were fired during a chase that ensued with officers.

The chase continued to an area near the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino, where shots were exchanged and the suspect was injured.

No officers were injured.

The sheriff's department is handling the investigation into the case.
