MANHEIM, Pa. --
A would-be robber picked on the wrong victim in Manheim early Tuesday, according to police.
Kevin Smith, 19, of Lancaster City was shot twice in the chest and died hours later at a local hospital.
The other man got away.
Police are now trying to learn who he is and where he might be.
Investigators said they believe the manager acted in self-defense.
The manager, Elder Sepulveda, opens the store at the same time every day. Police suspect the two men knew this and targeted him.
Police said they were shocked by the weapon used in the attempted robbery.
When the two robbers approached Sepulveda, Smith pulled out a TEC-9 semi-automatic handgun -- a weapon with a 30-round clip, police said.
Police said that after he was shot, Smith dropped the gun at the scene.
Police Chief Barry Weidman said he is not used to seeing a gun like this on the streets of Manheim.
He said he hopes to never see one again.
