A suspect is dead after a shooting at a movie theater in southwest Houston Saturday.

It happened at 3:30 pm at the AMC theater on Westheimer and Dunvale.  Police say a security guard was carrying a bag of money from the theater to an armored truck when a man came around the back of the vehicle and shot her in the hip.  Officials say another security guard at the scene fired back, killing the suspect.

The wounded guard was taken to an area hospital and is expected to recover.  The second guard was not injured.  No money was taken, but police say the suspect had a getaway car nearby and the driver of that car fled the scene.  No description of the vehicle is available.  The FBI is now involved in the investigation.
