The San Antonio Express reports that police confirmed this scenario in an email, writing, “Two suspects approached the armed security guard at around 1:00 a.m. Thursday at the Whatburger location at 5500 Lemmon Avenue in Dallas. At least one of the suspects tried to rob the guard at gunpoint” and was subsequently shot dead.
