BALTIMORE (AP) -- Authorities in Baltimore say police officers shot and killed a man after a foot chase.

Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez says officers spotted a man they believed was going to rob a local business on Wednesday evening. He says the suspect ran from officers and when they caught up with him, he pulled out a gun.

Police say officers fired at the suspect, hitting him multiple times. He was taken to an area hospital and police say he later died.

The man's identity has not been released.
