A suspect is dead Friday morning after he fled from authorities for being pulled over during a traffic stop.

Early Friday morning Suffolk County police pulled over a car for a routine traffic violation. Authorities say there were three passengers in the car, but as soon as the car stopped, the front seat passenger got out of the car and ran.

One of the officers chased the suspect on foot but when the suspect pulled out a gun and aimed it at the cop, the officer shot the suspect. The bullet caused a fatal wound, killing the suspect.
