BELGRADE, Yugoslavia — A Yugoslav deserter who killed two policemen while on the run from his army unit was shot and killed by militiamen Monday after a car chase in northwest Yugoslavia, the official Tanjug news agency said.

Several hundred troops had pursued Bojan Plut, 19, since he fled from the Ljubljana Barracks on May 1 armed with an automatic rifle and 700 rounds of ammunition.

He ambushed a car carrying two policemen Saturday, shooting both to death.

As he was being chased Monday, his car skidded off the road and he started shooting at a militia patrol. They returned the fire and killed him.
