POLICE SHOOT AND KILL BURGLARY SUSPECT

An unidentified burglary suspect was shot to death Thursday night by police near an apartment building in Frenchman's Bay.
A burglary in progress was reported by a Frenchman's Bay resident around 9 p.m. When police arrived, a pair of burglars had already broken through a glass door and were rummaging through the building.
The suspects exchanged gunfire with police as they fled the building a short time later before hiding in nearby bushes. A K-9 unit searched the bushes and discovered one of the suspects bleeding from apparent gunshot wounds, Radio One reported.
According to police, the suspect died while being transported to Roy L. Schneider Hospital.
Police have yet to release the name of the deceased. They are awaiting notification of next of kin, according to a release from Police Chief Jose Garcia's office.
