Burglary suspect shot and killed by police

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Three Memphis police officers were relieved of duty after they shot and killed a suspect in a home invasion.

The officers responded to a robbery call early Sunday morning in the 500 block of Brockwood.

They arrived to find the suspect standing in the driveway, holding a gun.

The man was ordered to drop his weapon several times before police fired shots.

The suspect was transported to the Regional Medical Center, where he later died.

The officers were routinely relieved of duty pending the outcome of an investigation.
