The suspect, who had not been identified Wednesday night, was shot shortly after 5:30 p.m. by a uniformed officer behind a house in 5300 block of N. 58th St., Flynn told reporters near the scene.
According to Flynn, about 5:30 p.m. two beer delivery men were robbed at gunpoint in the 5800 block of W. Villard Ave.
After the robbery was reported, police saturated the area and an officer spotted the suspect, who began to run.
The officer chased the suspect, who ran behind a house, where the officer caught up to him and attempted to arrest him, Flynn said.
As the two began to struggle, the robbery suspect pulled a loaded Glock semiautomatic handgun on the officer, who pulled out his service weapon and shot the suspect, who was pronounced dead at the scene, Flynn said.
