WESTMINSTER, Colo. — Both suspects in the robbery of a Westminster bank are dead and two police officers including the deputy chief were injured following a chase and shootout, authorities say.
Officer Sean Chandler, who joined the department in 1998, was shot in the hip and hospitalized at St. Anthony Central hospital in stable condition, Westminster police spokesman Trevor Materasso said.
A bullet grazed the hip of Deputy Police Chief Tim Carlson, who joined the police department in 1987. He was treated at the scene and not hospitalized, Materasso said.
Both suspects were shot in their car. The male suspect was killed during the shootout. The wounded female suspect was taken to St. Anthony Central hospital where she later died, Materasso said. He said both were young adults.
