BREMERTON, Wash. -

 A suspected shoplifter who collapsed while fleeing from a grocery store in Belfair later died at a hospital.

The Kitsap County sheriff's office says a loss-prevention employee confronted the man just before the store closed Sunday as he was rolling a shopping cart out the door loaded with alcoholic beverages.

The Kitsap Sun reports he ran off, jumping over two fences. A deputy arrived and found the man on the ground. He and the store employee performed CPR, but the man died Monday at a Bremerton hospital.
