LONE TREE, Colo. (AP) — Authorities have identified a suspected shoplifter shot to death by police in suburban Denver as 34-year-old Kenneth J. Sisneros, of Westminster.

The shooting happened at around 8:30 p.m. Thursday at the Park Meadows mall in Lone Tree as officers were responding to a theft at Macy’s.
