PUEBLO, Colo. — Pueblo police killed a home invasion suspect on Sunday after the man tried to flee and then fired on officers, the Pueblo Police Department reported.
About 11:48 a.m., officers responded to a report of two men, one of whom was carrying a handgun, kicking in the door of a home in the 1200 block of East 10th Street. Officers saw two men run out of the home and flee in a car, PPD reported.
