FULTON COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

The Fulton County Police Department released new details about a robbery in northwest Atlanta, where they say the victim fought back.

It happened Sunday at Sandtown Vista Apartments off Sand Bay Drive. Investigators say two men pulled a gun on four people returning home from Waffle House.

One of the victims pulled his gun and shot one of the suspects and both suspects got away.

"They fled in a red Monte Carlo, which was later found in the city of Atlanta with a dead body inside," said Sgt. Scott McBride with the Fulton County Police Department.

The robbery suspect shot by the victim died and his alleged accomplice, Carlos Smith, has been charged with armed robbery and murder.
