COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – A coroner’s report shows that a Colorado Springs man who was shot and killed by police during a chase suffered 14 gunshot wounds, 7 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 though 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.
