One suspect dead, another at large after robbery attempt  


PROSPECT — One suspect is reportedly dead and state police are searching for another after an attempted robbery at Route 69 Auto Sales on Friday.

Around 6:50 p.m., two suspects entered the car dealership and began assaulting people inside, State Trooper Josue Dorelus said.

During the altercation, one of the three people inside fired at least one shot from a licensed pistol, hitting at least one of the suspects.

State police deployed K-9 units and found the one suspect who was shot and killed, according to media reports. The other is still at large, Dorelus said.

State police have yet to figure a motive for the incident. The investigation and search were ongoing Friday night.
