BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) _ Authorities say a man suspected in several robberies has been shot and killed by law enforcement outside a Blue Springs Walgreens.

Court documents say investigators that included agents from the FBI and the Kansas City Police Department followed Jermon Seals and two other men early Thursday morning as they attempted to rob a gas station before going to the Walgreens around 3:45 a.m. and forcing an employee inside at gunpoint.

Authorities say the three men were confronted by law enforcement as they exited the store and at least one member of the group brandished a weapon at the officers. The officers fired, killing Seals.

FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton said that it hasn’t been determined which agency’s officer or officers the shot that killed Seals.
