A fourth suspect, who was shot during the robbery by 81-year-old homeowner Buddy Cates, died at a Texarkana, Texas, hospital, said Miller County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Michael McQuerrey. Investigators await positive identification of the body and official cause of death from the State Crime Lab, authorities said.

The shooting happened about 1:30 p.m. at a home at state Highway 196 and County Road 290.

Multiple shots were fired, according to investigators, and Cates was interviewed by Miller County Sheriff's Office. The homeowner was not injured.

Cates said he owns several rental properties and has been robbed at his home six times in the last 10 months.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to call the Miller County Sheriff's Office at 870-774-3001 or Texarkana Area Crime Stoppers at 903-793-7867.
