An armed robbery at a marijuana dispensary on Detroit’s west side turned deadly Thursday night.

A 34-year-old man was killed, and a 31-year-old was in critical condition.

The robbers stole an undisclosed amount of marijuana before fleeing in a black truck.

Police did not identify the name of the dispensary.
