A man in his 50s died after he was shot during a reported robbery attempt Tuesday night at a boat repair shop in the 3500 block of C Street Northeast in Auburn.
Another man in his 50s was injured after he was assaulted with a gun, said Auburn Police Cmdr. Mike Hirman during a phone interview Wednesday. Police are looking for the suspect.
A truck pulled up outside the shop at about 9:40 p.m. A man entered the shop and demanded money. He then shot one man, who died at the scene, and assaulted the second man, Hirman said. Paramedics transported the second man to a local hospital. Hirman said he didn’t know if the man remained in the hospital or had been released.
Detectives are working the case hard, Hirman said. He said no other details would be released at this time as police try to track down the suspect.
