AURORA, Colo. -- Aurora Police shot and killed an armed robbery suspect after a chase late Thursday night.

Police say the pursuit began after a reported armed robbery at the Fast-N-Friendly Food Mart at 138 N. Del Mar Circle about 10:30 p.m. Police were told a man with a black handgun had robbed the store.

An officer saw a sedan with no headlights on leaving the area at a high rate of speed and identified one of the passengers as a black man matching the description given at the convenience store.

Police chased the suspect to East Sixth Avenue and Tower Road where a pit maneuver was used to stop the suspect's vehicle.

Police say the suspect got out of the vehicle with a gun. The suspect was ordered to drop his weapon and when he didn't, they shot him.

The suspect was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A second suspect in the vehicle was arrested without incident.

No one was injured at the convenience store and no officers were injured during the incident.

The identity of the dead suspect will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office.
