Police say the three were running from the Valero Station on Huebner Road toward the Chisholm Trace Apartments.
Detectives say John Andrew Bermea, 20, was aroused by shouting and confusion at the apartment complex, and he ran outside to try to head off the robbers.
Officials aren't sure what happened, but a shot was heard, and Bermea was found dead in a breezeway at the complex.
