HOUSTON, Texas -- A suspected robber is dead after trying to pass a $20 counterfeit bill at a Houston food store, police say.

Houston Police Department said officers responded to a robbery in progress call around 10 p.m. Monday at the Super Qwik Food Mart.

When officers arrived, the suspect had already been shot.



Investigators determined the suspect tried to buy something with a counterfeit $20 bill. When the store clerk told the suspect the money was no good, the suspect pulled out his gun and opened fire.

The store clerk responded by also pulling out a gun and returning fire.

The store clerk was not injured and does not face any criminal charges at this time.

The suspect was taken the hospital where he later died from his injuries.

There were no other customers inside the store at the time of the shooting.

1 killed, several hurt in shooting at Mississippi sports bar

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A man was fatally shot and several others were wounded in a shooting early Saturday at a nightclub in Mississippi’s capital, an official said.

The shooting happened at M-Bar Sports Grill in Jackson, Hinds County Capt. Tyree Jones told The Associated Press. The name of the man killed was not immediately released.

The sheriff’s office shared images on Twitter of the shooting suspect, seeking help identifying the person and saying gunfire broke out after an altercation. The suspect left the bar and was not in custody.

It was unclear how many people were wounded because some of the injured people went to the hospital in private vehicles, Jones said. Their conditions weren’t immediately known.

Further details weren’t immediately released.
