COLLEGE PARK, Ga. (AP) - A suspect in an armed robbery of a McDonald’s was found dead behind the restaurant’s dumpster, minutes after the holdup.

News outlets report two masked men entered a McDonald’s in Clayton County on Wednesday night. Clayton County police Sgt. Ashanti Marbury said in a statement that one man confiscated cellphones from employees and customers and then took money out of the cash register, as the other man brandished a weapon.

Marbury says gunshots rang out soon after the men exited the restaurant.

Officers used surveillance video to identify the deceased man as one of the robbers. Police recovered the mask, multiple cellphones and an undisclosed amount of cash on or near the body.

Police say the other masked man hasn’t been found. Police do not know who shot the man.
