When they arrived, a woman was screaming inside the residence.

Police said he lunged at them and he was then shot by officers. He died of his injuries.

The second incident stems from a violent robbery call at about 5 a.m. on Sept. 22 in the area of Teton Ranch Avenue and Carnegie Street, that turned into a chase ending near Auto Show Drive. 

The suspect initially failed to stop his vehicle and once he did officers said he exited the vehicle with a gun and fled on foot. 

Shots were fired soon after and the suspect was pronounced deceased at the scene.
