One man is dead after a would-be armed robber was shot by the robbery victim as he tried to steal the victim's SUV.

Police said the victim, whose name hasn't been released, had a gun pressed against his head by the armed robber in the parking lot of the Bel Air Place apartments on Dewberry Blvd. in Lancaster.

The robber forced the victim at gunpoint to take him to his upstairs apartment. The victim said the robber said he'd kill him if he didn't give him "everything he had."

While being held in his apartment, the victim grabbed his own gun and started shooting at the robber. The two exchanged gunfire inside the apartment and the shootout continued to the breezeway and down into the parking lot.

Witnesses said the robber and the victim exchanged seven or eight shots during the incident.
