Colorado Springs, Colorado

From November 28, 2007 KKTV:

A robbery suspect was shot and killed after trying to rob a liquor store, Spring Police said. It happened just before 5 p.m. on Tuesday evening at a strip mall off of Jet Wing and Fountain.

The robbery suspect was taken to Memorial Hospital, but he was pronounced dead just minutes later. While the investigation is still on-going, Springs Police said the owner of the liquor store, in his 70’s, shot the suspect in the chest.

This is the 3rd robbery to happen in the Springs in the past 24 hours. In fact, robberies are on the rise in November.

“During the course of this year, we average 25-30 robberies a month, but now, that’s how much we’ve had in the past 2 weeks,” said Detective Don Chagnon with Springs Police. In November there have been close to having 60 robberies. Detective Chagnon said he doesn’t know why robberies are increasing.
