LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been critically injured after being shot outside a central Florida bakery.

Police were called to the Wonder Hostess bakery outlet in Lakeland Wednesday evening. Investigators say a man and his girlfriend had committed a burglary at the bakery and placed pastries and other bread items in their vehicle.

Police say the suspect was shot in the head.

The man's name has not been released, pending notification of next of kin.
