An alleged armed robber in Roseville, Michigan, was shot dead by a car wash customer around 7 p.m. on Tuesday night.

WXYZ reports that the attempted robbery occurred “at Wash Pointe car wash.”

Macomb Daily reports that a customer was using a vacuum when allegedly confronted by two men, at least one of whom was armed.

The customer was also armed and shots were exchanged, leaving one of the robbery suspects deceased.

Deputy Police Chief Mitch Berlin said, “It appears this was a street robbery, we’re unsure if it was a carjacking, and there was an exchange of gunfire. One of the suspects was struck and died at a local hospital.”

The customer was not injured during the exchange of gunfire.
