MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say a gas station store employee is dead and a suspect is in critical condition after a shooting during a robbery attempt in eastern Memphis.

Memphis police spokesman Louis Brownlee tells news outlets that a suspect attempted to rob the store on Thursday afternoon and the suspect and the employee exchanged gunfire.

Brownlee says both men were taken to a hospital in critical condition, but the employee later died. Authorities have not identified either of the men.

Colonel Samuel Hines says police are searching for two more suspects in the robbery attempt.
