Police said the man demanded Tran turn over his money and then began assaulting him while threatening to shoot he and his girlfriend.

It was then, police said, Tran pulled out a weapon of his own and fatally shot the man.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office identified the robbery suspect Tuesday as 39-year-old Alexander Clair Bessenesker.
