Authorities in Tucson say a man suspected of robbing a home and attacking the homeowner was fatally shot as he tried to leave.

Pima County Sheriff's Deputy Dawn M. Barkman says a neighbor called police as three men broke into a home Friday and pistol-whipped the homeowner. She says the men then fired shots at another neighbor who intervened as they were leaving the home.

Authorities say one suspect was shot as the neighbor's son returned fire. That suspect later died at a hospital from his injuries and his identification has not been released.

Authorities say the other two men are in custody.
