Md. police look into death inside upscale shop

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) - Police say a woman employee at an upscale athletic apparel store in Bethesda has been killed and another woman worker was sexually assaulted after they were attacked during a robbery attempt.

Police said Saturday the woman who survived is talking to detectives. Montgomery County police spokesman Capt. Paul Starks says two masked men in gloves entered the Lululemon Athletica shop Friday night about the time it was closing.

The store is in a busy shopping district in a suburban Washington neighborhood.
