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.
