DENVER — A Federal Heights police officer shot and killed a man suspected of robbing two separate stores on Sunday night, Federal Heights Police spokesman Gary Toldness said.
Police received a report of a robbery at 92nd Avenue and Tejon Street late Sunday, followed by another robbery report from a Family Dollar store at 84th Avenue and Pecos Street a short time later, Toldness said.
About 10 p.m., a Federal Heights officer confronted the robbery suspect near the Family Dollar. The confrontation ended with the officer shooting the suspect, police said.
The suspect has since died at the hospital. No officers were hurt.
As of 10:15 p.m., there was a heavy police presence in the area and several streets were closed for investigation.
