Officials say they received a call from a man who claimed two men, armed with handguns, tried to rob him in his apartment Saturday night on North Bridge Street.

He was pronounced dead on the scene.        

Police are now searching for the second suspect who ran from the apartment.

Anyone with information is asked to call city of Poughkeepsie police at (845) 451-7577.
