A suspect was shot to death during an alleged attempted robbery at a West Side pawn shop Tuesday. Two other suspects were on the run, police said.

Police remained at the pawn shop in the 5900-block of West Fullerton Avenue Tuesday. Authorities said three armed men threatened an employee and the shop keeper, who also had a gun. It is unclear who opened fire first, but one of the suspects was killed.

Two others fled the scene on foot. Police are now looking at surveillance cameras.

It's unclear if the other suspects were injured.
