A concealed carry permit holder shot and killed an armed robber at an ATM in Orange County early Tuesday, deputies said.

The shooting happened a little after 2:30 a.m. at a Wells Fargo on Hoffner Avenue, near South Conway Road, officials said.

The man pulled out a gun of his own and fired at the alleged robber, investigators said. The robbery victim had a valid concealed weapons permit, deputies said.

The two men exchanged gunfire and the man in his 60s drove away and called 911, deputies said. Deputies said the robbery victim returned to the scene after speaking with authorities.

The alleged robber was taken to a hospital for treatment, but did not survive, deputies said.

The names of the men involved in the incident have not been released.
