MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Milwaukee police have shot and killed a robbery suspect who was carrying a semi-automatic handgun at a downtown transit center.

Police say officers confronted the suspect Monday about 8 a.m. at the Milwaukee County Transit Center. The suspect was shot by officers and died at the scene.

Police spokesman Mark Stanmeyer says the suspect is believed to have been responsible for an attempted armed robbery in the area earlier that morning.
