(CNN)Armed robbers have made off with a large cash haul seized from an Austrian Airlines plane just about to take off from an airport in Albania.
The masked assailants broke onto the runway of Tirana International Airport, close to the Albanian capital, Tuesday through a fire services entrance, and stole a shipment of money destined for Vienna, the AFP news agency reported Albanian police as saying.
A police chase ensued and one of the gunmen was shot to death. He was found to have been armed with an assault weapon, a grenade and a magazine of bullets, according to media reports from the scene.
A gunman was killed by Albanian police after armed robbers made off with a large haul of cash from an airplane at Tirana International Airport.

"The perpetrators exchanged fire with the police during the chase in a secondary road and one of them lost his life in that exchange," police said in the statement, according to Reuters news agency.
Police arrested four of the attackers and questioned 40 others following the incident, AFP reported.

Albania's Deputy Prime Minister, Erion Brace, praised the police for their actions and wrote on Twitter that the robbers were from "one of the most dangerous gangs" in the country. He added that the police "eliminated its leader."
Austrian Airlines confirmed that the incident affected Flight OS 848 destined for Vienna, and took place shortly after passengers had boarded the aircraft.
Witnesses reported that the assailants, dressed in military uniforms, approached airport staff working by the plane when the engines were already running, and ordered them to the ground. They then took the cargo of cash that had been loaded into the hold.
Austrian Airlines spokeswoman Tanja Gruber told CNN that the airline was "glad that neither passengers nor crew were hurt during the incident."
"Safety is our top priority at Austrian Airlines and as a first measure we decided to stop the transport of valuable cargo to and from Tirana airport," she said.
"We are currently gathering and joining forces in order to develop further measures. Tirana Airport has as well increased its security measures immediately."
