DENVER (AP) — Authorities have identified a bank robbery suspect who was fatally shot by police after pulling a firearm during a confrontation in east Denver.

The Denver Post  reports  36-year-old Charles Boeh was shot multiple times after trying to flee police by ramming his vehicle past two cars at a stop light Wednesday afternoon. Three officers opened fire when he brandished a firearm.

Boeh, who was wanted on suspicion of bank robberies in Colorado and out of state, died at the scene.

A woman in his vehicle was treated for injuries, and one officer also was treated for injuries that are not gunshot related.
