HILLCREST HEIGHTS, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County police say an apparent would-be robber has died following a struggle for his gun.

Police say officers found the man suffering from gunshot wounds about 12:30 a.m. Sunday in Hillcrest Heights. Officials say the man died at the scene in the 4400 block of 23rd Parkway.
