Police: La. deputy fatally shoots robbery suspect

HOUSTON (AP) - Police are investigating the death of a Houston man they say was shot dead by an off-duty Louisiana deputy he tried to rob.

Dead is 25-year-old Cortdalro Damarcel Brown. A police statement says the off-duty Franklin Parish, La., reserve sheriff's deputy was sitting in his car with his brother in a Houston apartment complex parking lot Tuesday night when Brown approached, brandished a handgun and tried to rob them.

The 29-year-old deputy, whom police didn't identity, drew his own handgun and shot Brown in the chest. Brown died a short time later at a hospital.
