DURANGO, Colo. (AP) — Police in Durango shot and killed a burglary suspect who opened fire on an officer at an auto parts store.
The Durango Herald reports police went to the store on Main Street early Wednesday after being alerted by a security alarm. Police surrounded the store before the suspect shot at an officer through the glass front doors of the business. The officer returned fire, killing the suspect, who has only been identified as a man in his 30s.
No officers were injured.
