Man dies during business robbery in Calabash


CALABASH, NC (WWAY) -- A man is dead after an early-morning robbery near Calabash, but the circumstances surrounding his death have investigators working overtime.

Around 5:45 a.m. Brunswick County deputies were dispatched to an armed robbery at Winners World sweepstakes parlor.

According to a police report, two African-American males shown in surveillance video took an undetermined amount of cash before getting away.

Some time during the robbery an unidentified man at the store suffered a heart attack and died.

District Attorney Jon David says his office is investigating to see if there are any legal grounds to pursue murder or manslaughter charges against the robbery suspects.
