Coroner IDs man killed by Aurora police at gas station

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of an attempted murder suspect who was shot and killed by police in the Denver suburb of Aurora.

The Arapahoe County Coroner's Office identified the victim Tuesday as 36-year-old Antonio Sanchez and said he died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Sanchez was shot in a gas station parking lot following a police chase Friday afternoon. No officers were injured.

Officer Bill Hummel, a spokesman for the police department, says it's not yet clear how many officers fired their weapons or how many shots they fired. A weapon was found at the scene, but police have not said if the man pulled it on officers.

Sanchez was wanted for a shooting that happened Thursday evening.
