Police say the tenant was outside his apartment complex in the 1500 block of Dewberry Boulevard around 8:35 p.m. when he was approached by the suspect.

The victim was then forced to go upstairs to his apartment where his wife was. Once inside his home, he was able to grab a gun and a gun battle ensued. The fight continued as the victim chased the robber downstairs. The robber somehow ended up in the tenant's Ford Expedition. Police were called out to the scene and found the robber had died sitting in the SUV.

The robbery victim was not injured in the incident.
