HOMEWOOD, Ala. (AP) - Police in central Alabama say officers fatally shot a robbery suspect who pulled a gun on them outside a gas station.

Homewood Police Sgt. Keith Peterson tells local news media the suspect, a white woman, was shot multiple times Friday by three officers when she pointed the gun at them after leaving from a package store at the Marathon gas station. Police say officers received an anonymous tip the suspect was at the store after she attempted to rob a wireless service shop a few blocks away.

Police say about a dozen bullets were fired by officers. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The name of the suspect has not been released.

Peterson say police believe the suspect and another person were involved in other robberies last week.
