An armed robbery suspect was shot dead and another man suffered a non-life-threatening wound during a robbery at a liquor store in Santa Clarita Sunday evening.

The robbery in the 19900 block of Golden Valley Road was reported to the sheriff’s department about 8:20 p.m., said Deputy Tracy Koerner of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

Homicide detectives were piecing together the details at the scene, but Koerner said it appeared the two men shot each other during an attempted robbery at a business.

Names were not released pending notification of relatives.
