Armed Robbery Suspect Shot To Death In Garden Grove

GARDEN GROVE (AP) — Garden Grove police says officers fatally shot an armed robbery suspect.

Spokesman Lt. Jeff Nightengale says the shooting occurred Sunday night near Harbor Boulevard and Westminster Avenue.

He says as officers arrived at the scene of a reported robbery two suspects fled in different directions.

The officers gave chase and the shooting occurred after a suspect climbed a wall and ran toward a business area.

Nightengale says the suspect was killed, but did not provide other details on how it occurred.

He says the officers were not injured and a firearm was recovered at the scene.

A second suspect is still being sought.
