Colorado Springs man shot 14 times by police during chase in December, coroner reports

7 of the gunshot wounds were in the suspect's back

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A coroner's report shows that a Colorado Springs man who was shot and killed by police during a chase suffered 14 gunshot wounds -- seven of them in his back.

Police say 23-year-old Robert Kresky was killed on Dec. 4 after they saw him driving a stolen vehicle and he refused to pull over.

Officers chased him for about five miles. The pursuit ended when Kresky crashed into a police car.

Police said Kresky was shot during a foot chase after he got out of the car and started running, and they apparently thought he was armed.

According to KRDO-TV, police have not commented on the shooting because that is standard procedure for any open investigation. Police say the officers involved in the shooting are no longer on administrative leave.
