EDGEWOOD, Md. (AP) — The Harford County Sheriff's Office says a man suffered a fatal heart attack as he was robbing a grocery in Edgewood.

Deputies were called to Aldi about 8:50 p.m. Monday for a reported armed robbery. Police found a man lying face down on the floor inside the supermarket; witnesses said he had tried to rob the store at gunpoint.

Authorities say deputies found a handgun under the man's body. Law enforcers began CPR and twice used an automated external defibrillator.
