MIAMI (AP) - A clerk at a South Florida check-cashing store has died after being shot along with two other people during what was reported as a robbery.
A SWAT team stormed the store in unincorporated Broward County near Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday morning.
The Broward County Sheriff's Department says a female clerk who had been shot died later Tuesday at a hospital. A male suspect was found wounded outside, and another wounded man was across the street. It's unclear if the second man was involved or just a bystander.
Officials initially thought the clerk was a hostage. They waited until it was safe before going in.
A spokeswoman says she's heard of no connection between the shootings and the fugitive siblings on the run following a crime spree in Florida and Georgia.
