A man police believe tried to rob a Dunkin' Donuts on Laurel Fort Meade Road Tuesday morning died at a Maryland hospital this morning after the store's owner shot him in the lower body, Anne Arundel police said.

Police responded to the store location, on the 3400 block of Laurel Fort Meade Road, around 3:30 a.m. for a report of a robbery. Police believe a man entered the store, implied that he had a weapon, and announced a robbery. After a struggle between the owner of the store and the man, the owner shot the man, who was transported to a hospital in Prince George's county where he later died from his injuries.

Homicide detectives are investigating the incident, said Justin Mulcahy, a police spokesman.
