A 17-year-old Connecticut girl died from gunshot wounds Tuesday, three days after she and three other people were shot during a suspected robbery attempt in a Hartford apartment, police said.

Alondra Vega-Martinez, who lived in the apartment, is the second person to die from the shooting, police Lt. Aaron Boisvert said in a statement.

A man identified as Joseph Vargas-Mercado of Philadelphia, died in the shootout. A second apartment resident was in critical but stable condition at a hospital, police said.

Boisvert said investigators believe gunfire was exchanged between the robbery suspects and someone in the apartment Saturday afternoon. A large but undisclosed amount of cash, a cash-counting machine and a firearm with an obliterated serial number were found in the home, police said.
