November 19, 2009
WESTMINSTER, Colorado – A suspect is dead and two officers are wounded after a bank robbery and chase in suburban Denver.
Westminster police spokesman Trevor Materasso said the injuries to the police officers weren’t life-threatening.
The chase began after officers tried to pull over a man and woman suspected of robbing a bank. The suspects allegedly fired at the officers but the officers were able to stop them after spinning out their car about 1.5 miles away.
A shootout then broke out and the male suspect was killed. The woman was wounded and taken to a hospital.
Dozens of markers indicating where shell casings had landed were scattered around the scene.
