A suspected robber is dead. Police say it looks like he was shot by one of his accomplices.Investigators say five men tried to steal a bill pay machine at an Exxon station Sunday morning on the East Freeway at Lathrop. The robbers saw the clerk, and the suspects ran off in different directions.

Police say it looks like the men were firing randomly as they ran away. They say they're working to determine just who exactly shot the victim.

"Of course, we won't know for sure until we compare bullets and other evidence here at the scene," explained Sgt. David Ferguson with the Houston Police Department.

The name of the shooting victim hasn't been released. The clerk wasn't hurt.
