A 30-year-old man who allegedly broke into an Glen Burnie coin shop was fatally shot on Christmas morning, police said.

About 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, police went to Arundel County Coin Shop, located at 7418 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd. Upon arrival, officers found the shooting victim, Byron Keith Phillip, of Chester, Md. He died at the scene, said Lt. John McAndrew with Anne Arundel County police.

A store employee told police that Phillip broke into the business while he was there. An altercation ensued, during which the employee shot Phillip. Phillip then ran out of the coin shop and collapsed, police said.

Authorities were continuing to investigate the incident and were not releasing the employee's name Tuesday afternoon.
