DENVER (AP) — A man suspected of killing a woman and wounding another is in the hospital after being shot by Denver police after he fired at a propane tank he was carrying.

The suspect was seen walking with a gun and two propane tanks in a neighborhood Friday, prompting police to warn residents to remain indoors.

Police Chief Robert White said officers responded and shot the man when he fired his gun at the tank to cause an explosion.

A woman was found dead in one home and a second woman was found wounded in another. Their identities haven’t been released yet.
