ELKHART, Ind. — Authorities in northern Indiana say a suspected bank robber has died after being shot by police officers following a chase through city streets.

Elkhart County Prosecutor Vicki Becker says 30-year-old Corey Bailey of Elkhart was wounded multiple times in the Thursday afternoon shooting.

Becker said Friday that Bailey was fleeing from police when he pointed at handgun at a driver and opened the car’s door. She says that’s when two Elkhart police officers fired at Bailey, who was pronounced dead at a hospital.
