WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- One teenager is dead and two others are in custody following an attempted holdup at a Wichita convenience store.

KWCH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/TgHBcS) a 16-year-old boy was shot and killed by a clerk shortly after 7 p.m. Thursday at KC Gas & Groceries on North Broadway.

Police say two or three teens entered the store and tried to rob the clerk at gunpoint. The clerk fired several times, hitting the 16-year-old. The boy died at a hospital. His name had not been released Friday.

Two 19-year-olds fled but were later arrested.

The same store had also been robbed last weekend. In that incident, the clerk had just closed up for the night when two armed men ordered him back inside and emptied the cash registers before running off.
