A botched burglary led to a carjacking, chase and shootout that killed one suspect and wounded a Denver police officer in the foot, officials said Monday. A second suspect was taken into custody.
The shooting followed an initial burglary call at about 1:25 p.m. in the 3700 block of Grove Street in northwest Denver, police said.
Officers came in contact with two men who were burglary suspects in the 3400 block of Irving Street, said Doug Schepman, a Denver Police Department spokesman.
One suspect was taken into immediate custody, but an armed suspect fled on foot. Shots were fired in the area of West Moncrief Place and Lowell, Schepman said. The suspect then carjacked a vehicle, police said, and they pursued.
