PHOENIX (AP) - One suspect is dead and another is on the loose after police say the men tried to rob an armored truck.

The shooting happened outside a Wells Fargo branch Friday morning.

Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos says the armored vehicle employees were changing out a money box at an ATM when two suspects approached them. One of the employees shot one of the suspects and the other suspect ran.

Martos says the suspect who was shot was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Officers cordoned off the area and searched for the second suspect. He was described as a black man in his 20s. He was wearing a gray shirt and baggy pants, and police say he may be armed.
