A suspected armed robber was fatally wounded Sunday night after more than one police officer opened fire on him during a confrontation behind a Lauderhill home, police said late Sunday.
Just before 8 p.m., a man flagged down a Lauderhill police officer at 800 North State Road 7 to report he had been robbed at gunpoint moments earlier. The officer learned the robbery took place in nearby Plantation, but the robber headed into Lauderhill, according to Lauderhill Lt. Mike Santiago.

Santiago said the search came to an end about an hour later when the suspect was spotted.
?Shots rang out,? he said.
