LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police say a woman attempting to rob a doctor’s office was fatally shot by a worker there.

Police say a man and woman walked into the medical office during an appointment on Wednesday evening and began ransacking the business.

Lt. Dan McGrath says the man was armed with a handgun and demanded money and possibly drugs. Police say the man pistol-whipped the doctor.

McGrath says a clinic employee retrieved his own gun from his vehicle, confronted the suspects in the parking lot and fired multiple shots at the woman.

The woman was taken to the hospital, where she later died. The doctor was also taken to the University Medical Center with facial injuries.
