SPRINGFIELD - A Springfield police officer was wounded by a suspect who was then killed by police in a shoot-out at 126 Malden St. yesterday afternoon, officials said.

Aaron Brevoort, 28, was pronounced dead at Baystate Medical Center at 2:35 p.m., about 50 minutes after he first opened fire on the detail of 10 city, state and federal police who were attempting to bring him into custody, police said. He was wanted on a fugitive from justice warrant from New York.

Police officer David M. Askins, 37, appointed to the force in 1993, was shot in the leg by Brevoort, said Springfield Police Commissioner Edward A. Flynn.
