Cincinnati officers fatally shoot suspect

CINCINNATI (AP) — Police in Cincinnati say they fatally shot a fleeing suspect who pulled a gun on officers.

Police officials said it happened during a traffic stop in the Walnut Hills section at about 1 a.m. Tuesday.

The man, a passenger in an SUV, declined to cooperate with police during the traffic stop and ran off, according to media reports.

Officers struggled with the suspect, and he pulled a pistol. Both officers fired at the man, who was pronounced dead later at a hospital.

No further details and no names have been released. A news conference was planned for later in the day.
