One suspect is dead, a second remains at large after a robbery on an armoured truck in Millwoods in southeast Edmonton. Police responded to the call at the TD Canada Trust near 25th Avenue and Hewes Way at about 12:45 a.m, this morning. Upon arrival, officers found a man dead on the ground nearby.

Police say two robbery suspects had approached the armoured truck guards, pepper sprayed them and demanded cash.

But before both men could flee the scene, one of the guards fired his gun, killing one of the two suspects.

A second suspect remains at large, police say.

The two guards were treated on scene for pepper spray, but were otherwise unharmed.

Detectives with the EPS Homicide and Robbery Section have been called in to investigate.
