A 24-year-old Parkersburg man is shot and killed after police say he tried robbing another man in Columbus.

The Columbus Police Dept. says Larry Niko Mausali attempted to rob a 46-year-old man in a Columbus neighborhood after 7 p.m. Friday.

Investigators say Mausali drew a gun on the man, took his wallet and made him drive toward a bank, to withdraw money from an ATM.

But during the drive, the victim pulled out his own handgun, and shot Mausali.

Mausali was taken to a Columbus hospital where he later died.

The case remains under investigation.
