NYPD officers shoot and kill gun suspect

New York City police say they've shot and killed a gun suspect who tried to flee from them.

The NYPD says the shooting occurred at about 3:50 p.m. Thursday in the East New York section of Brooklyn after plainclothes officers tried to stop a man who appeared to be carrying a gun. It says the man fled on foot and the officers chased after him.

Police say a preliminary investigation found that there was an exchange of gunfire before the man ran into a building. They say he was found dead inside with a silver revolver at his side.

The officers weren't wounded.
