RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Three handguns stolen from a Rapid City outdoors store in April have been recovered in Colorado after violent crimes.

Rapid City police say two of the guns were recovered following a standoff in Lakewood, Colorado, with a suspect in a fatal shooting. The third gun was recovered from a suspect killed in an officer-involved shooting in Aurora.

That shooting was preceded by the suspect carjacking a vehicle at gunpoint before leading police on a high-speed chase.

The guns were among 25 stolen from The Rooster store in early April. Rapid City Police Capt. James Johns says finding the rest of the guns is “a priority concern.”
