MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Police say a contractor working overnight at a restaurant in Madison died when two armed men tried to rob the establishment.
 
A police report says the two masked robbers entered the Culver's restaurant about 3 a.m. Tuesday while four men were working on a remodeling project. Police say one robber targeted the restaurant's safe while the other robber held the men at gunpoint.
 
The report says one of the four workers, a 56-year-old man, died during the commission of the crime. The cause of his death is under investigation, but police consider it a homicide.
 
Authorities say the workers aren't from Dane County. Police provided no additional details.
 
Culver's said in a statement that it hoped the perpetrators would soon be in custody and brought to justice.
