The Associated Press

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Haitian police say a radio journalist has been killed by a gunman who tried to rob him outside a bank.

Deputy police spokesman Garry Desrosiers says Jean Richard Louis Charles was fatally shot on a busy street in Port-au-Prince after withdrawing about $1,000.

Desrosiers says the 30-year-old Radio Kiskeya journalist resisted when he was assaulted by three robbers Wednesday. One of the gunmen shot him in the head and the shoulder, and he was declared dead at the scene.

An off-duty police officer fatally shot the gunman. The two other suspects escaped.
