In a non-residential area, Denver police shoot and kill victim inside a cop car

“A suspect was killed Tuesday in an officer-involved shooting in Denver.

Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said an officer was taking a suspect in a drugs and weapons arrest to a station when the suspect somehow managed to try to overthrow the officer.

After a struggle, the marked patrol car came to a stop and the suspect was shot by police, Jackson said.

The incident happened in the 6300 block of East 39th Avenue just before noon and the suspect was pronounced dead at 12:10 p.m.

Jackson could not say how many shots were fired, or whether both officers opened fire.

The incident happened in a non-residential area. Surrounding buildings are mostly warehouses and light industry.”
