COLLEGE PARK, Ga. (AP) - Police in Georgia say three people are dead after an armed robbery attempt at a liquor store just south of Atlanta.

College Park police Lt. Lance Patterson told reporters that the owner, an employee and the suspect were all shot to death amid the Friday night gunfire.

Patterson said the owner of the business shot the suspect, but that police are still investigating the sequence of events and exactly what took place.

Police said the employee was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police said they were not looking for any additional suspects.

College Park is about 8 miles (13 kilometers) south of downtown Atlanta, near Atlanta's international airport.
