LAS VEGAS (AP) — A robbery suspect was shot and killed by police outside a Laughlin business.

Police say they responded to the business after receiving a call that a gunman entered it and robbed the employee late Friday night.

According to investigators, officers contacted a man who fit the description of the suspect outside the business and the man drew a handgun after they issued commands to him.

The man fell to the ground after he was struck by gunfire from the officers. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The name of the suspect and the business were not immediately released.
