HOUSTON (AP) - Police say a convenience store clerk in Houston has fatally shot two masked men who allegedly tried to rob the place.

Houston police on Tuesday did not immediately release names of the two men who were killed. Both were shot Monday night and died at a hospital. Authorities are seeking one other suspect.

Police believe the would-be robbers drove to the store Monday night, went into the business and one suspect pistol-whipped a clerk. Police say another clerk was on a break but returned, pulled a gun and opened fire.

The suspects drove away. Police say two wounded men were dropped near an apartment complex, then later taken to a hospital where they died.

Police say the fatal shootings will be referred to a grand jury.
