Officers spotted the suspect inside the restaurant at the safe, and called upon him to surrender. Police say the suspect exited through a side door with a weapon in hand, at which point one officer discharged his weapon.
The suspect was struck once, and died at a hospital.
No officers were injured.
The suspect has not been identified. Police Chief Hank Stawinski is expected to hold a press conference later Monday morning.
