One Dead After Failed Robbery At San Diego Medical Marijuana Dispensary

An attempted holdup at a North Park medical marijuana dispensary erupted in gunfire Friday, leaving a security guard wounded and a suspected robber dead, authorities reported.

The shootout at the shop near the intersection of 30th Street and University Avenue occurred shortly before 12:30 p.m., according to San Diego police.

One of three suspected thieves died at the scene, a dispatcher said. The other two ran off and sped out of the area in a white sedan.

Medics took the wounded security officer to Scripps Mercy Hospital, SDPD public-affairs Officer Mark Herring said. The victim's condition was not immediately available.

Thank you security guard, get well soon. Only guns can stop armed thugs who decide to take things from other people instead of working and earning them on their own.
