AURORA, Colo. (AP) - Investigators say a carjacking suspect who was shot to death by Aurora police following a high-speed chase pointed a loaded handgun at officers.

The Aurora Sentinel reports (https://goo.gl/sWX4co ) 35-year-old Stephen Schuster carjacked an SUV late Tuesday night and rammed a police cruiser during the chase that followed. Police pinned the vehicle with their cruisers and fired multiple rounds at the man after officers say he pointed a gun at them.

Sgt. Matthew Fyles said Thursday a woman who was in the stolen SUV told investigators that Schuster vowed to “shoot it out with the police and kill them all” if he had to.

The woman, whose name hasn’t been released, was arrested on an active warrant and additional charges.

Police say Schuster had an extensive criminal record, including assault on a police officer.
