Provided by Denver Post Crime tape closes off access to Inca street near Sixth avenue east of Santa Fe which was closed due to a police shooting on the edge of Denver's Lincoln Park neighborhood on Jan. 27, 2019 in Denver.

The incident began around 8:54 p.m. when police in northeast Denver began pursuing an armed robbery suspect, according to a statement from the Aurora Police Department. The suspect, who was hospitalized in critical condition after the shooting and later died, has not been identified.

Denver police used a helicopter to track the suspect’s vehicle, Denver Police Deputy Chief Barb Archer told reporters at the scene Saturday. Two other people were inside along with the suspect, she said.

The pursuit went into Aurora and the suspect’s vehicle crashed into two cars on Interstate 225 and on East Colfax Avenue, according to Aurora police. The suspect then carjacked a silver sedan and kept driving to Airport Boulevard, where the suspect drove north in the southbound lanes.

In the 2400 block of East Airport Boulevard, Denver police used a maneuver to cause the suspect to lose control of the vehicle and were able to stop the sedan. All three people inside the car got out and ran.

The suspect then attempted to carjack a silver minivan, but was not able to. He continued on to carjack a maroon SUV, but officers pinned the SUV in place.

“During this final encounter with the suspect a Denver police officer made the decision to discharge their weapon striking the suspect,” Aurora police spokeswoman Crystal McCoy said in the statement. The officer has not been identified.

It is not clear whether the suspect was armed when he was shot by police; officers later found a handgun inside the maroon SUV.

A woman who was in the car with the suspect was arrested on suspicion of aggravated robbery, and a juvenile male passenger was arrested on an unrelated warrant, according to Aurora police, who declined to name the two, citing the ongoing investigation.
