LEONARDTOWN, Md. (AP) — Authorities in St. Mary’s County say a man is dead after two men broke into his home to rob him.

Officials say two men on Thursday night forced their way inside the St. Inigoes home of Robert L. McDowney, 37, and announced a robbery.

One of the men pulled out a gun during the struggle that followed and shot McDowney, who died at the scene. The two men drove off a Ford Fusion.

The county’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation is handling the investigation.
