BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore police have identified the armed robbery suspect and the officer who fatally shot him as he came running out of a convenience store carrying a sawed-off shotgun.

Police said 20-year-old Eric Garrison died early Monday after an officer encountered him just after he robbed a 7-Eleven store at gunpoint.

Police identified the officer who shot Garrison as Kevin Amy, a 17-year veteran of the police department.

Commissioner Kevin Davis said Monday that based on a review of store surveillance and Amy’s body-camera footage, Amy did exactly what he was trained to do.

A police spokesman said Monday that Garrison is suspected of committing numerous commercial armed robberies in which a similar gun was used.
