A police helicopter has been dispatched to search for a third suspect, who fled on foot.

Meanwhile, the BP fuel station remains closed.

Gary Freeman witnessed the foiled robbery and shootout after stopping at the BP Express store to buy a cup of coffee.

He says the suspects' getaway car hit his as they tried to flee.

"As I got out the car one of the perpetrators was sprinting around the side away from the scene. There were three in total and one had been shot dead."
