Undercover detectives were following Gilbert Lovato late Saturday night when they say he and a woman with him – Audrey Hapke – held up the Village Inn on University and Menaul at gunpoint.

Officers ended up stopping the two at Carlisle and Comanche. That's where shots were fired and Lovato was killed. Hapke was not hurt.

Police say she was involved in a string of armed robberies with Lovato over the past month. She is being held without bond.

This is APD’s first officer-involved shooting of the year.
