CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- One suspect was shot and two others fled the scene during an attempted robbery at Toys R Us in Vienna near the Grand Central Mall Tuesday afternoon, said Sgt. Michael Baylous, State Police spokesman.
State Police along with other law enforcement agencies in Wood and surrounding counties responded to an attempted robbery at Toys R Us, Baylous said.
One male suspect was shot by a Parkersburg Police officer at the scene and died as a result of his wound, Baylous said.
The other two suspects are described as a tall white male in his early 20s with brown hair and a blue shirt and a white female with blond hair worn in a bun. Both fled the scene on foot.
The State Police Crime Scene Response Team was at the scene and further information is to be released as it becomes available, Baylous said.
State Police announced the two suspects turned themselves in to Parkersburg Police late Tuesday afternoon. Their names were not released.
A call to Toys R Us was referred to a manager who said, "I am sorry. I can't give any information out. Thank you for calling." Then she hung up.
Cameron Sparkman, operations supervisor at the nearby Steak and Shake, said he could confirm that the tires and a back window were shot out of a black Honda Civic.
From his location, he could see several police cars from various law enforcement agencies on the scene.
