OAKLAND, Calif. - A suspected robber died after accidentally shooting himself in the leg while he and another man held up a Pinole liquor store, authorities said.
Police found the body of Sharffeequa Williams, 24, on a West Oakland street a few minutes after the holdup Saturday morning.
Security cameras recorded footage of Williams shooting himself at the liquor store counter while returning a gun to his waistband, according to Oakland police.
Williams and the other suspect then fled in a dark-colored American vehicle similar to a Ford Crown Victoria, Pinole police said.

Police were still looking for the accomplice.
