DENVER (AP) — Attackers who killed a man in Colorado may have held up a store in Wyoming and a bank in Utah later the same day, authorities said.
The rampage began early Friday in Denver when a man was shot multiple times, and the attackers stole his black 2015 Cadillac sedan, police said.
The victim was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His name wasn’t released.
Two hours later, a black Cadillac was used in an armed robbery at a convenience store in Cheyenne, Wyoming, 100 miles (160 kilometers) north. Cheyenne police said two men robbed the store, and one of them fired a handgun twice. No one was injured.
The men took cash and merchandise and returned to the Cadillac, where a woman was waiting, police said.
Six hours after the Cheyenne robbery, the same men robbed a Wells Fargo bank in Park City, Utah, 440 miles (710 kilometers) west of Cheyenne, authorities said. One of the men was armed with a handgun, the Summit County, Utah, Sheriff’s Department said.
Deputies said the men drove away in a black Cadillac with the same Colorado license plate as the car stolen in Denver, and a woman may have been a passenger.
Authorities said they did not know what direction the car headed.
The FBI was assisting with the investigation.
This story has been corrected to show the robbery in Utah occurred six hours after the one in Cheyenne, not four hours.
