JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson police are investigating the armed robbery of a business on Rose Street. 

The suspect shot during the robbery died in the hospital on Thursday.

Shortly before 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, officers responded to the DS Food Mart.

Officers learned that two suspects, one man and one woman, entered the store. One displayed a handgun and demanded the clerk remove money from the register. 

At some point during the robbery, the clerk got a handgun and fired shots at the suspects hitting at least one.  The suspects ran away, but one was later found nearby suffering from a gunshot wound.  

He was transported to an area hospital where he later died.  

The second suspect, believed to be a female, remains at large but police may already have a possible lead as to her identity. 

The store clerk was not injured during the incident.  

This investigation is ongoing.
