DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say two customers at a South Florida grocery store were shot and killed by two masked men with semi-automatic handguns.

Delray Beach Police say two men with bandanas over their faces opened fire early Sunday inside Community Market. Two customers were hit.

According to police, the men then demanded cash from the register and then fled the store. It wasn't immediately clear how much money they took.

Police say one customer died at the scene and the other died at a hospital. Neither victim has been identified.

Officer Jeffrey Messer tells the Sun Sentinel that the robbery is similar to one that took place two blocks away on Saturday.
