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

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.
