After a brief foot chase, one of the suspects turned towards police with his handgun but according to police, did not fire.

Two officers shot the suspect, and he was pronounced dead on scene. The second suspect escaped through the woods.

Officers also learned there may have been two additional suspects involved.

Investigators believe the third suspect escaped in the getaway car driven by the female suspect. That vehicle is described as a brown Ford Taurus.

The officers involved in the deadly shooting of the suspect have been relieved of duty pending this investigation.  The names of those officers have not yet been released.

The name of the suspect killed has not yet been released either.
