Oct. 6-An armed burglary suspect was shot and killed by deputies with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office in Colorado City on Wednesday night, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Around 11:45 p.m., deputies responded to a burglary call at a residence on Santa Fe Drive where they encountered the armed suspect, the Sheriff's Office said in a release.
