CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Police say two men were killed by a gas station clerk during an attempted robbery Monday night in northeast Ohio that left the clerk wounded in both legs.

Authorities say three armed, masked men rushed into a Marathon gas station in Canton shortly before 9:30 p.m., triggering a shootout. Officers found two of the men lying on the ground near the station. They were later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police have identified the two men as 23-year-old Antonio Gracia, of Canton, and 21-year-old Ronnie Lawson. Police are looking for the third man in the robbery.

Canton police Capt. Dave Davis says the clerk’s wounds were not fatal. His name has not been released.

Davis says detectives are examining recordings from a surveillance camera at the station.
