Police officers fatally shot a car theft suspect Saturday after he pulled out a weapon during a chase, police said.The shooting happened at about 3:30 p.m. after one of two people in a suspected stolen vehicle that police were following in the Denver suburb of Aurora got out and ran, acting Denver police chief Ron Thomas said. The suspect got to a fence, turned around, produced a weapon and threatened the officers chasing him, leading at least two officers to fire at the suspect, he said.The unidentified man was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later died, he said.
