Police fatally shot a suspect apparently armed with a gun early Monday in Clinton, Md., officials said, after the person was found at a safe in a fast-food restaurant.
Prince George’s County police officials said the incident happened around 3:40 a.m. in the 8800 block of Woodyard Road.
According to an initial investigation, officers responded to an alarm call at the restaurant and found a “suspect inside at the safe,” according to a police Twitter message.
