Man killed in robbery attempt outside club

A 26-year-old man was killed this morning in the parking lot of a strip club, Greensboro police said.

About 4 a.m. Monday, three men attempted to rob another man near his car in the parking lot of Lost Dimensions at 510 Farragut St., Capt. Gary Hastings said.

During the robbery attempt, the man fired a weapon at the three men, Hastings said.

When police arrived, they found a 26-year-old man – one of the three alleged robbers – dead of a gunshot wound in the woods on the edge of the parking lot, Hastings said. Police would not release his name until his family had been notified.

The other two men involved in the attempted robbery are in police custody, Hastings said. Police are still investigating whether the alleged robbers also fired weapons.

Police are also interviewing the man who fired the fatal shot.

Hastings would not release the names of the other men involved in the incident.

The investigation is still in its early stages and further details would likely be release later today, Hastings said.
