    The scene of an attempted armored car robbery in Dallas on 2300-block of West Davis near Hampton.

    One person has been injured and another killed during an attempted robbery of an armored car in Dallas Friday morning.

    The incident took place on the 2300-block of West Davis near Hampton Road in the parking lot of a check cashing store at about 9 a.m., police said.

    According to officials, the Dunbar Armored truck was delivering money when the guard was ambushed by a man who was waiting near the bus stop.  According to police, the man rushed at the guard and started shooting as the guard attempted to make a delivery.

    "[It's] early in the investigation, but it does appear that the suspect was waiting at the bus stop and when the armored guard approached the building, he did ambush him," said Sgt. Warren Mitchell, with the Dallas Police Department. "Suddenly rushed him, shot at him, multiple times and the guard was able to fire his weapon, striking the suspect."

    Both of the men were injured in the exchange of gunfire and transported to Methodist Central Hospital in Dallas. There was a second guard in the armored car who was not injured.

    The guard is listed in stable condition while the suspected robber died at about 10 a.m.  

    It is not yet known if there were any other injuries in connection with the attempted robbery and shooting.
