An alleged carjacking in Pueblo Saturday morning led to a police shooting that left the suspect dead.
The carjacking began at a youth centre in Pueblo. The woman called police and reported her vehicle stolen.
An off-duty officer located the vehicle after a description was sent out to Pueblo Police Department and the Pueblo Sheriff’s Department.
Officers perused the vehicle, until the car hit a telephone pole. The suspect then got out of the car and fled on foot.
The suspect was located near an alleyway. A deputy thought the suspect was armed, so he shot and killed the suspect.
The suspect was identified by the coroner Monday as 20-year-old Jesse Cedillo of Pueblo.
The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Department reported that no officers were injured. This is still an ongoing investigation.
