Officers shoot, kill Sumter carjacking suspect

Sep 28, 2010 3:50:00 PM - thestate.com
A 24-year-old carjacking suspect has died after authorities say he was shot by Sumter police officers.

Deputy Chief Russell Roark told multiple media outlets that officers were responding to reports of a carjacking Tuesday morning when they saw someone who matched a description of the suspect.

Roark says Aaron Jacobs shot at the officers, who then returned fire and shot him several times.

Sumter County Coroner Harvin Bullock says Jacobs died from multiple gunshots. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

Roark says the officers and the carjacking victim were not hurt.
