DENVER (AP) - The Denver Coroner has identified the man accused of robbing a bank who was shot and killed by a police officer as he fled the scene.
The Denver Post reports that 25-year-old John Bazemore III was pronounced dead on Friday after being shot in an alley.
A woman who was in the area during the incident said she saw a man wearing a gray ski mask over his face walking out of the ANB Bank. She says he was followed out by two men who screamed that the bank had been robbed.
